New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2018

ASCL 80.07 The History of Development in Asia

For more than a century, development has been a central theme in the study of Asian politics, culture, and societies.  But what is “development,” exactly?  This seminar explores the history of development in Asia by treating development as a species of politics, rather than a socio-economic process.  In the assigned readings and discussions, we will examine the complex interactions between development and empire in various places in Asia, in both colonial and postcolonial contexts.  We will also compare recent efforts by scholars to develop new methodological approaches to the study of development ideas and practices in Asia.  In addition to completing the assigned readings, each student will write an article-length paper about a particular topic or event in the history of development in Asia.  This paper must be based on original research in primary sources.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
