WSEM-451 International Development: Novels, Film, and Music (3)


This course uses novels, feature films, and music videos from the Global South to examine several themes in international development, including socialist and neoliberal development models, gender in development, modernization and globalization, and post conflict reconstruction. These themes impact the everyday lives of populations from the Global South, who oftentimes record their protest, struggle, and accomplishment in novels, films, and music. Students compare non-traditional texts from the Global South, while exploring local, national, and international concerns. Grading: A-F only.
