This course explores questions such as: What constitutes women's reproductive lives? How do women's reproductive lives differ by age, race, nationality and sexuality? We answer these questions by looking at the intersections between the history of medicine, histories of the body, and history of sexuality. We will examine how the professionalization of medicine and public health has changed women’s relationship to their bodies, sexuality, reproductive health, and childbirth. Students in the class will work on a group project that uses historical methods, oral history/interviews and feminist analysis in their study of reproductive health.
