Medical anthropology examines experiences, beliefs, and practices of illness, health, and healing from a cross-cultural perspective to show that illness, health, medicine, and the body are shaped by social relationships and contexts and cultural values. The course explores medicine/healing (including biomediciine) as a socio-cultural phenomenon; medical pluralism; medicalization; illness and moral reasoning; local and global political-economies of health; dynamics of power, knowledge, and inequality in medicine; and the relationship between globalization and medicine, among other topics.
