This summer, Professor Alexander Jech is leading a 3-week study abroad program to Ethiopia! He will be teaching the course “Bridging Theory and Practice: Philosophical & Pragmatic Perspectives on Development,” which will introduce students to the ideas of Aristotle, Adam Smith, and Marx, and the attempt to bring these ideas into useful form in Nussbaum and Sen’s “Capability Approach” to measuring human development. Students will also connect with local NGOs and learn first-hand what works and doesn’t in development, with particular focus on food security, women and development, and the role of religion in development.
