Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this seminar, we will scrutinize the post-colonial moment of the Cold War Era as "Age of Development" in which the newly independent states (and the liberation movements) in Africa, Asia and Latin America emerged in the focus of interest of the competing world systems. These states and movements became not only objects of "Development Policy" resp. "International Solidarity" but actors with their independent interests in these new fields of international (political and economic) relations. In this seminar, some of these relations which have recently become the object of scholarly interest shall be studied. The focus shall be on transfers of material (money, goods) and immaterial (personnel, technologies, attitudes) resources. In this perspective, "Development Policy" resp. "International Solidarity" shall be examined as "globalizing" enterprises and as a major field of recent Global History studies.
