Land and Livelihoods

Land and Livelihoods
In this course we will explore how people make a living in different places, with an emphasis on land-based livelihoods of “smallholders” in the Global South. We will focus on issues of poverty, inequality, natural resource dependence, diversification, and education at the microscale level of individuals, households, and communities and then situate our understanding within forces operating at a more macroscale. Through a combination of readings, lectures, and exercises we will examine relationships among land, work, and wealth, and the way these relationships may be changing in different regions. 3 hrs. lect.
