ANTH 228 - Introduction to Medical Anthropology

The course introduces medical anthropology, and contextualizes bodies, suffering, healing and health.  It is organized thematically around a critical humanist approach, along with perspectives from political economy and social constructionism.  The aim of the course is to provide a broad understanding of the relationship between culture, healing (including and especially the Western form of healing known as biomedicine), health and political power.
