Study power and politics in Ecuador, focusing on dominant development paradigms and resistant models that different groups have proposed. This program combines a political and economic focus with an emphasis on discourse and language as we consider how discussions are shaped.. Because power and ideology are reproduced and challenged through language, you will explore how stakeholders in Ecuador have used Spanish and indigenous languages to instill, reinforce, subvert, and reinvent power relationships. You will leave with a sophisticated understanding of how this small, bio-diverse, and multi-ethnic country is thinking about development. Please visit our website for more information
