21A.215 Medical Anthropology: Culture, Society, and Ethics in Disease and Health

Logo for 21A.215 Medical Anthropology: Culture, Society, and Ethics in Disease and Health
This course looks at medicine from a cross-cultural perspective, focusing on the human, as opposed to biological, side of things. Students learn how to analyze various kinds of medical practice as cultural systems. Particular emphasis is placed on Western (bio-) medicine; students examine how biomedicine constructs disease, health, body, and mind, and how it articulates with other institutions, national and international.
