Diagnoses are often viewed as disinterested scientific descriptions of objectively "real" entities. In contrast, this course approaches diagnoses as social artifacts and collective achievements: objects created in, and marked by, particular socio-historical contexts, leading to an assortment of moral and political consequences. The course surveys an array of historical and contemporary diagnoses, but focuses on medicalized categories related to sexuality, sex, and gender (e.g., onanism, hysteria, nymphomania, inversion, homosexuality, FSD, GID, ED, and the paraphilias). Along the way we consider various diagnosis-related phenomena, such as disease mongering, diagnostic advocacy, enhancements and "lifestyle" drugs, the rise of diagnostic biopsychiatry, and medical social control.
