 1. Outline the main principles of Modernization Theory, Dependency Theory, and World- System Theory. Were they seeking to explain or transform global stratification? What is this question asking and what is the potential scope? • Firstly, a task: “Outline the main principles of Modernization Theory, Dependency Theory, and World-System Theory”. • Secondly, a question: “Were they seeking to explain or transform global stratification?” • The introduction should only describe these three theories in very brief, general terms (e.g. mainstream and neo-Marxist theories of global stratification and development…1950s–1970s…etc.) and then make a clear statement on “explanation” vs. “transformation”.!Taking a position here (or arguing that the situation is mixed) is a kind of thesis statement. You are answering the question in a kind of thesis statement. It’s okay to answer the question in your introduction. The rest of the essay is about bringing in “details”, “data”, “evidence” for analysis, upon which you build your argument that “justifies” your position. • Subsequent paragraphs… Perhaps begin by defining what we mean by “global stratification” (e.g. social stratification on a global scale); then introduction modernization theory, and then introduce dependency theory and world-system theory. You will probably have to mention “explanation” / “transformation” in those introductions, but then it would be good to have a short but focussed discussion on this, even if summarizing. Primary readings: • Lesson 10 assigned readings (Lemert, Rostow, Gardner & Lewis). • See also Lesson 10 PowerPoint slides (use these for revision and as “signposts” to important points in the readings). • Lesson 11 assigned readings (Gardner & Lewis, Lemert, Wallerstein, Cardoso ! although you won’t have much – if any – space to discuss Cardoso). • See also Lesson 11 PowerPoint slides (use these for revision and as “signposts” to important points in the readings).
