Instructor: Khalid Kadir
This reading-intensive seminar will explore the relationship between engineering, technology, and poverty. Rather than focusing on narrowly construed quantitative measures of the impact of technology upon poverty, it seeks to understand the relationship between poverty experts — focused on applying technology to solve issues related to poverty and social justice-and their objects — impoverished, under-served, and socially marginalized people. Students should have a background in poverty alleviation or international development. Students interested in this course should contact the instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
