ANTH 124 PZ - Illness and Health: Anthropological Perspectives


This course provides an introduction to the study of medical anthropology, with emphasis on the human rather than the biological side of things. It examines medicine from a cross-cultural perspective, focusing on the relationship between culture, health and illness in various contexts. Students will learn how to analyze medical practice as cultural systems. The course also looks at how Western medicine (bio-medicine) conceptualizes disease, health, body, and mind, and how they intersect with national and international organizations and processes.

Instructor: L. Martins
Course Credit: 1.0
