Title: Development and Applied Anthropology
Description: This course will consider the role of social science in development and socioeconomic change. Special emphasis will be placed upon the social, economic, and environmental impacts of development and how social science research and applied work can assist in development project planning, design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. The primary focus of the course will be on sustainable and non-sustainable development, with emphasis not only on the benefits but also the costs of development. The various actors in international development, including international organizations, governments, multilateral development banks, non-government organizations, and community-based organizations will be examined. Special emphasis will be placed upon the responses of local people. The goal of the course is to arrive at a better understanding of how development can best be handled so as to have maximum positive impacts on people, their socioeconomic systems, and their environments.
