This course will provide basic training in post-colonialism as a research approach and other qualitative methods in political science to help students explore how colonial histories of violence continue to shape the landscapes, political structures, and relationships of the present. In addition to traditional methods training, students will experiment with different mediums such as social media marketing/content design, policy briefs and NGO grant writing/proposals to explore different dimensions of the field of development as a career.
