|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject considers alternative approaches to the relations between the developed world and Africa and Asia. Particular attention is paid to those processes of change and exchange which fall outside the formal interaction of states. Among the areas and issues considered are gender and sexuality, race, ideas about the nation and questions of economic dependency. By the end of this subject, students should have a grasp of contending approaches to North/South relations; an understanding of the ways in which the problems and perspectives of the Third World contest Eurocentric First World conceptualisations of international relations; and a basis for undertaking more advanced work on the place of race, culture and gender in international studies.
