Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Social inequality on a global scale is a thematic focus of the Master Development Studies. Along with a critical reflection of social inequality in its global dimensions historical and contemporary social, political, cultural and economic processes which produce, reinforce and "naturalize" inequality will be discussed and analyzed in a transdisciplinary mode. Categories such as "race", class, gender, sexuality and further naturalizing categories (f.e. poverty/"the poor") will be addressed and their importance for the production of knowledge, for conceptualizations of development or for development policy in practice will be critically reflected.
Lecture series by several lecturers, and discussions.
