ECO 336 - Gender and Latin American Economic Development


This course is about the relationship between gender and economic development in Latin America. We examine the evolution of women’s property rights, access to resources and employment, and socioeconomic position. We use economic tools to understand the role that gender plays in various development models as well as in the analysis of poverty, inequality, credit, land, and labor markets. The course then looks at the impact of economic change and economic development on gender, families and the household, as well as women’s responses to such changes via movements for social and gender justice. Finally, we examine ‘post-development’ feminist alternatives to modernization that are emerging from the Global South.
