Gender and Development

UPADM-GP.440, 4 points.


This course provides an interdisciplinary introduction to and overview of the issues associated with the social transformations associated with changing roles, opportunities and expectations of women and men in the "global South" as their societies undergo social upheavals associated with development, and the resultant impact this has on gender relations and power. We will explore the political, economic, and cultural dimensions of these changes in gender relations, including issues associated with industrialization, agriculture and food security, reproductive health, violence, changing cultural norms, and the role of social movements.
