ID 227 - Ideologies of Race in Development


This course explores the inherent silences in development discourse regarding “race.” We will explore how the colonial projects of civilizing the “primitives” was primarily a racial project that continues into modern day development. We synthesize historical, political, and anthropological approaches to examine how the beliefs in “racial” hierarchies dominated the ideologies of social evolution, eugenics, the missionary project, colonialism, slavery, and current international development. We will also explore how this racial discourse was appropriated by global resistance movements. This is a graduate seminar course. Students will be expected to lead a seminar discussion and write a 20-25 page research paper.
