International Trade and Development

The geographical focus of this seminar is variously known as the ‘developing world,’ the ‘global south,’ and the ‘third world.’ Through historical and critical lenses we will examine the ways in which global trade has helped and hindered processes of development, as well as postcolonial, Marxist, and Feminist critiques of the concept of developmentalism itself. The seminar ends with a three-week focused study on the relationship between resource extraction and economic, social, and political development.
