An interdisciplinary study of the health of enslaved African Americans during the nineteenth century by focusing on the conceptions, experiences, and dynamics of the relationship between slaves, medicine, healing, and their masters in the Antebellum American South. Cross-listed with AFAM 366
Dr. de la Cova developed this course originally for African American Studies. It employs both ethnohistorical materials and the anthropological biocultural model for analyzing cultural and environmental factors that shaped disease and illness amongst ensalved African Americans in the US. This course was originally cross-listed with anthropology as a special topics course. We now seek that it be made a permantent offering and one that counts toward the Carolina Core Integrative requirement for Anthropology majors given that it enables students to apply a method with regional and historical case study.
Official: African American approves of the permanent cross-listing of ANTH/AFAM 366: Medicine, Disease, and Slavery course. Sincerely,Nancy D.

To make the short title more clear, please update it to read, "Med, Disease, & Slavery". This will match AFAM 366.
I include here email comments from Dan Freedman and John Hsieh in support of approval for ANTH 366, SOCY 303 and SOCY 561 (sorry for redundancy).
I believe all three syllabi meet the GSS criteria. Dan.
ANTH 366: It is a good addition. I support this proposal.
SOCY 303: Approve.
SOCY 561: More appropriate than SOCY 303. I support the proposal.
I have reviewed all comments for this proposed course. I recommend approval.
