Advanced Seminar in Medicine and Society: Patients, Politics, Policy

Anthropology 4421 - Fall 2020

This course is designed to build on foundations provided in the First Year Medicine and Society Seminar. It will interrogate current health related issues including gender, sexuality, politics, policy, and economics, and will also explore how these and many other issues, demographics, and such impact current health and healing related decisions and policies. We will read about and unpack contemporary issues in health care (insurance, big pharma, gender and sexuality, race) and have local experts visit to talk about their practical experience with and in health care. Students will be expected to engage with ethnographic, medical, economic, political and sociological material as well as current journalism to interrogate the topic. This course will meet twice per week for 1.5 hours. Prerequisites: ANTH L48 141 and L48 142
