ANT 312 - Medical Anthropology (1)

This course offers an introduction to the cross-cultural study of illness, health, disease and medical systems. We will look at how culture, political systems and economics shape experiences of and access to medicine. Using ethnographic case studies we will examine cultural understandings of pain, suffering, healing, and death as well as the contemporary challenges of AIDS and emerging infectious diseases. May count toward the SAN or GSS major. Prerequisite: ANT 101 , SOC 317 , or SOC 368 . Alternate years.
