SOC 7470 - Sociology of Development

This Graduate level course provides a survey to the subfield of the sociology of development. We will focus on how sociologists seek to explain broad patterns of sociocultural change and economic growth, with particular attention to how the key explanator factors privileged in sociological explanations of development and underdevelopment have changed over time. We will review a range of contending theoretical perspectives and approaches.
