PLCP 4412 - The Idea of Development

Offers a historical survey of how the idea of development that crystallized during the European enlightenment became “hegemonic” after WWII and during the process of de-colonization. Also reflects on how development came to express the ideological struggles of the cold war and whether it acquired a “new life” in the aftermath of the collapse of communism and the advent of “globalization.” Prerequisites: prior course in PLCP.
