TR 3:30-4:45PM

“Global inequality” is a term that refers to the systematic differences in the distribution of socially valued attributes such as education, income, information, health, and influence between people living in different areas of the globe. Global development is the field of research concerning efforts to improve human well-being around the globe. This course explores areas of human existence where there are great disparities around the globe and the efforts being made to alleviate the inequalities. We will use sociological theories and concepts as tools to critically analyze development efforts and the contexts they happen in. Topics include micro finance, food security, health interventions (including HIV/AIDS), sex trafficking, labor and sweatshops, poverty, and disaster relief.
