Primary Instructor:

This course explores the ways in which medical, scientific, and popular discourses about gender, sexuality, and substance use / abuse have worked together to construct categories of “health” and “disease” in American history. Using films, novels, and memoirs, as well as scholarly research, we will examine conditions such as alcoholism, drug addiction, eating disorders, and nymphomania, among others, to ask how concepts of “excess” and “deviance” are gendered and linked with sexuality, and how stereotypes related to these issues have shaped social stigma and access to medical treatment.
