Course Descriptions

HS 283F — Gender and Development

Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.

Examines politics and policies of international development from a gender-sensitive perspective. Concepts of "development" and 'gender' are framed within historical and political contexts. Students examine how development affects women and men differently according to class, ethnicity, geography, age, and seniority. Ways in which gender asymmetries have been addressed in development and approaches to mainstreaming gender are explored. Usually offered every year.
