Science, Medicine, and the Body


Introduces students to scholarship about the body's complex relations to science, technology and medicine. Examines how embodied knowledges and experiences of pain, disease, injury, and ability relate to forms of gender, sexuality, race, state power, coloniality, and capital. Explores these connections across debates in medical anthropology, science and technology studies, cultural theory, and the medical humanities, while paying close attention to different genres of writing.
