Globalization and Development in India and South Asia (F21)

Course content

This course turns focus on the key themes of globalization, development, modernization and neoliberal reforms that underpin the ongoing transformations in South Asia.

We will explore how the intersections of capitalism, labour and migratory flows produce the logics of economic growth, global developmental regimes, and how poverty and wealth, and inequity and inequality is produced in contemporary societies. These questions will be examined from South Asia with a particular emphasis on the axes of class, caste and gender upon which the ongoing transformations are taking shape.

The course is especially focused on the great transformation towards free-market reforms, and the ways in which these shifts produce contemporary politics and subjectivities.
