CORE 003 SC - Embodying Illness


How do our bodies feel, act, and respond when we are ill? This seminar considers how the body is not just a biological entity, but one also profoundly shaped by social and historical circumstance. We trace how the embodiment of illness connects to cultural norms, practices, and understandings of the self. Importantly, we consider the body as existing within relations of power, including forms of surveillance and normative framings of the able body. The course ultimately challenges us to rethink divisions between "the body" and "society" by exploring how illness experiences are embedded in cultural and political processes.

Course Credit: 1.0
