1. Geographical Perspectives on Development
This lecture provides students with an introduction to development geography. Based on practical examples and case studies I present and critically discuss basic methodological and theoretical approaches with regard to the emergence and perpetuation of ‘underdevelopment’ in the global South. Globalization and global environmental change have far-reaching implications for geographies of development at various scales. Especially the continuous increase in economic and social fragmentation as well as the resulting forms of marginalization and vulnerability for large sections of a rapidly growing world population pose a major challenge for contemporary development research and practice.

2. The Himalayan Border Region
This The rationale of this lecture arises from the twin objective to comprehend the centrality of the Himalayan border region within the entangled imperial and national histories of adjacent states as well as to explore the agency of its marginalized residents in dealing proactively with shifting forms of territorial boundedness. I therefore explore how the Kumaoni Bhotiyas, former trans-Himalayan traders and a Scheduled Tribe of India, have dealt with imperial forms of power and authority under British colonial rule. The analysis considers a previous call to conceive High Asia as a continuous zone and an agentive site of political action by arguing that confluent territories and overlapping sovereignties are key to understanding the historical development, present status and future perspectives of the Himalayan border region.

Dr Christoph Bergmann is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Geography at the South Asia Institute, Heidelberg University. As an interdisciplinary scholar with particular expertise in the domains of social anthropology and human geography, much of his work has sought to establish a locally and historically contextualized understanding of stakeholder activities in High Asia and, more recently, Sub-Saharan Africa. He adopts an actor-oriented approach to scrutinize processes of border-making and to unravel geographically and socially uneven patterns of development, with a particular focus on the knowledge, aspirations and agendas of those considered as socio-economically or socio-culturally marginal.
