Globalization and Development

Faculty and students concentrating in the area of critical feminist studies in globalization and development focus their work on gendered patterns of labor, migration, citizenship, and violence, under contemporary neo-liberalism. By engaging every dimension of the human experience, cultural, economic, political, judicial, embodied, ideological, affective, and by employing multiple methodologies and analytical approaches, we seek to widen the conceptual and theoretical scope of development and globalization studies. Our interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching in these areas is fostered by ties to several university and college initiatives such as the Institute for Developing Nations and the College Development Studies Program, with the goal of bringing our scholarship to bear upon current development initiatives and problems across the world.

These courses are designated by course number WGS 587.
