Development & Humanitarianism

Fall 2020

Taught By: Emma Park

Section: A

CRN: 8740

Credits: 4

From the consumption of “Fair Trade” coffee to summers volunteering abroad, development thinking and humanitarianism often appear to be two sides of the same coin. This course offers students a longer genealogy of the relationship between transformations in developmentalist thinking and humanitarianism in the so-called global south by exploring topics such as: the relationship between capitalism and the abolition of the Atlantic slave trade; emergent ideas surrounding “social welfare” and domesticity campaigns; and neoliberal reforms and the rise of micro-financing.
