Prereq: Permission of instructor.
This course will bring the anthropology of gender to the study of medical anthropology. We will examine the interconnections between gender, ethnicity, and class in relation to the greater and lesser likelihood of disease. We will explore differences in health in relation to the resources available and the treatment modalities called upon by people in different social locations within the United States, and internationally. We will also look at the symbolic importance given to different phenomena related to the body, disease, and healing. This course will draw heavily upon the ethnographic literature to develop conceptual accounts of gender, ethnicity, class, and health.
