Kishan Garhi Village, A Generation of Change: Technology, Society, and Culture.
A village in the rural area of India--Kishan Garhi-- is studied in this visually oriented social studies unit designed for higher education students. Concerned with the contemporary condition of human society rather than the historical evolution of the third world, this unit deals with the process of rural social change and the interaction of technology, society, and culture. A major objective of the comparative approach used is to reveal not only change, illustrating that innovative ideas and practices have penetrated developing countries, but also to present visual data illustrating how the quality of life has improved for the majority of villagers. An innovative approach combines a contrasting study of visual materials. Pictures were taken from Kishan Garhi showing evidence of change between the anthropologist's two visits -- the first in 1951, and the latter in 1968. The major portion of the document provides a list of slides along with interpretations on changes in technology, society, and culture; women's roles; castes and occupations; agricultural operations; and village architecture. In addition, a brief introduction to the project and to the slides is given, and a list of slides and published materials included. Accompanying slides are available from Foreign Area Materials Center, State Education Department, 60 East 42nd Street, New York, New York 10017. (SJM)
