(Re)Building Communities: Insights from India
Ms Wong Soon Fen
Dr Kankana Mukhopadhyay
This course explores the concepts, practices and issues related to community development and culture. It focuses on the building and/or rebuilding of marginalised communities (e.g. women, migrant workers, artisans) in developing Asia, particularly within the context of India. It offers students an interactive learning opportunity that combines theory, classroom discussions in Singapore, and field visits in India. Students will critically examine debates about the nature of community development and culture as well as ethical, social and economic challenges of different models.
Part 1: Understanding community development, culture and India
Part 2: Field visits (India)
Part 3: Reflection and sharing of insights gained
