Development & Rights (MA)


Course Description

‘Development’ has come to represent the political relationship between rich and poor countries following the end of colonialism. This programme offers a critical approach to development through the lens of anthropology. http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-development-rights/

It explores the historical role of anthropological engagement in development, and provides the opportunity to rethink concepts, policies and practices underwriting global inequality.

Offering a critical exploration of the concept of rights (human, indigenous, or gender, for example) and how it is mobilised to make various kinds of claims, the degree presents diverse perspectives on how we might address global inequality.

The Masters includes half a day a week spent on a placement with a London-based development-related organisation, which you will negotiate. This is an ideal way to build work experience and for critical reflection on some of the issues raised in the classroom.

Jessica Dean

108.gif The atmosphere of the anthropology department is friendly and relaxed, and interdisciplinary interaction has helped me to achieve a broader understanding of the field of anthropology in general. The college is a particularly stimulating centre for study, since it reflects the diverse and multicultural nature of London. Also, its closeness to a wide range of important museums, libraries and other cultural establishments and events has greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the course. The teaching and support I have received at Goldsmiths have greatly improved my self-confidence and I feel my time here will leave me with lasting benefits for the future, in terms of both intellectual and personal growth.
