Sub Title:

Effect of Development Policy and Social Change at Grass-roots Community in Indonesia

Course Description:

I will describe social changes brought by rapid and heavy development policy, taking a case of Indonesia. My analysis is based on field research in two sites (one urban and another rural) where I have been watching since 1996. I will focus on changes on such aspects as human relations within the community, flow of information and changes in communication mode, religious piety, life-style etc. I will show you video which I recorded at the research sites.
Through this course first of all I want you to get clear image on people's life in a relatively "unknown" world, and so doing, to reconsider such questions as what is "development" and what is "prosperity. Does economic development really bring you prosperity and happiness ?

Critical analysis and evaluation are most welcome.

Classes: 13
