Where has “global mental health” come from, and how are we to understand the kinds of care and careers this new phenomenon offers? This course considers mental illness, social pathology, and expertise in diverse situations, past and present, within a global scale. Students will learn a basic history of mental illness and psychiatry, though we will especially analyze developments in colonial, postcolonial, and racialized worlds of difference, including in North America.

Learning activities will embrace primary source analysis, critical reading of texts and films, and discussion. Assessment will be based on: paragraph-length interventions, two quizzes, two short papers, and structured exercises that build research and presentation skills. No exams.

This course is part of the multi-seminar Michigan International Seminar for Undergraduates program. It includes some contact with students in MISU seminars UC 254.005, 254.008 and UC 250. A portion of the syllabus will include assignments shared by these seminars and several class meetings will bring students from these seminars together for films, discussions, and other activities.
