The course serves as an introduction to men's health, taught through the perspective of gender studies. Theoretical approaches to the analysis of inequities and differences affected by gender, race, social class, and ethnicity will be central features of the course. The course will introduce and discuss the health/medical/cultural and cross-cultural aspects of topics including cardiovascular disease (high blood pressure, ASCVD), arthrosclerosis, cancer (lung, colon, prostate), reproductive health (sexually transmitted disease, infertility, impotence), AIDS, popular culture and the representation of "masculinity", mental health, addiction (alcohol, substance, tobacco), grief and emotion, rape and violence, carcinogenic (tobacco-lung, human papilloma virus-lower genital track) and genetics of cancer and other diseases. These topics will be approached through case studies meant to illustrate how health/biomedical problems can also be understood as points of entry into broad cultural debates. The format will be lectures, with several guest speakers and small group discussions, supplemented by outside readings.
