ANT 425 - Medical Anthropology


Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ANT 201
This undergraduate course is designed to introduce a broad range of medical anthropology topics, theoretical approaches and research techniques by examining case studies. To do so, we are compelled to move beyond common tendencies to narrowly focus on the biological dimensions of illness and healing. Instead we will focus on the ways illness, health, and healing are embedded within distinct social, political, and cultural worlds - meaning the course will examine how experiences such as pain, misfortune, and ecstasy are culturally produced and understood.
