SISU-348 Gender and Development (3) Course Level: Undergraduate

Gender and Development (3) This course examines from an interdisciplinary and international perspective how development is gendered and creates different meanings, impacts, and processes for women around the world. Students explore the different theoretical approaches used in understanding women's situations in developing societies and examine the impact of production and reproduction, politics, globalization, environment, and migration on women in different parts of the developing world. Students probe the success and failure of development strategies in incorporating women into the development process and explore new approaches to ensure women's empowerment and their agency to fully participate in development processes. Grading: A-F only. Prerequisite: SISU-206 and SISU-240 or SISU-260.
