OLPD 8101: International Education and Development

3 Credits

This seminar explores theories, debates, discourses, and practices that have historically linked international development (or simply ‘development’) and education (both formal—schooling—and non-formal education). We will consider this linkage from different disciplinary perspectives, including anthropology, economics, history, political science, and sociology as well as interdisciplinary research that seeks to transcend these boundaries. We will examine the intertwined histories of colonialism, development, and education; efforts to promote national development through the expansion of schooling; the role of development institutions in shaping education policy and practice; and several current issues in the field of IED today. Throughout, we will consider different perspectives on how, and whether, education can foster better lives for people around the world.
