Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The project takes its point of departure in the investigation of the Western/modern idea that development is necessary for every country in the world. Using the critical modernist Vincent Tucker and the poststructualist Arturo Escobar, we are challenging the discourse of modernity. Through different analysis approaches we have examined the Dakar Framework for Action and the applicability on our case study example, Zambia. The projects leads to the conclusion that ‘Third World’countries are effected in many ways when applying modern development ideas in ‘Third World’ countries.The general focus is often on positive aspects of development but from this project we awoke the awareness of the consequences for the countries submitted to development programs. Dimensions: Text & Sign, History & Culture and Subjectivity & Learning
