The Dickey Center support an international studies course whose focus is global inequity and other development issues.
INTS 15/GEOG 6- Introduction to International Development
Why are some countries rich and others so persistently poor? What can and should be done about this global inequity and by whom? We address these development questions from the perspective of critical human geography. Focusing on the regions of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, we examine how development meanings and practices have varied over time and place, and how they have been influenced by the colonial history, contemporary globalization and international aid organizations.
