SOC 398 - Sociology of Development


What is the meaning of ‘development’? How did the world become divided into ‘developed,’ ‘developing’ and ‘underdeveloped’ regions and nations? What brings about ‘development’?  Can development occur without underdevelopment? What are the main processes and actors involved in the development process?  Do culture, geography and ecology matter in the development process? We will explore the sociological literature to examine and reflect upon these questions.
