AN 349 - Medical Anthropology


Credits: 3
A survey of the field of medical anthropology with a focus on the cross-cultural study of the body, health, disease, illness, suffering, and healing.  Students examine and apply several theoretical perspectives, including biocultural, interpretive, critical, and political economic.  We analyze ethnographic studies of birthing, maternal and child health, emerging diseases, death and dying, and other issues across the human life cycle in diverse geographic settings.
Prerequisites:   and  .
