Course Description:

This course introduces the field of medical anthropology, which is the study of human health, disease and healing from a cross-cultural perspective. The political economy of health as a result of modernization is a central focus. Topics covered include cross-cultural understandings of illness and healing, the social/cultural context of health and health interventions, and the impacts of emerging and re-emerging diseases such as AIDS, Ebola, and Tuberculosis on world health. The underlying theme of the course is the use of anthropological concepts and methods in domestic and international public health contexts.
