This course explores women’s reproductive health from biomedical, social, cultural, public health, political and health policy perspectives. Topics include reproductive physiology, sexual health, contraception, abortion, sexually transmitted infections, sexual violence, infertility and reproductive technologies, miscarriage, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. The course aims to teach the biomedical knowledge essential to understanding these topics, and in addition offers students the tools to critically evaluate this knowledge from a feminist perspective, and using a reproductive justice framework. Race and racial disparities in reproductive health and health care are central to the framing of issues covered, as are transnational and global contexts for reproductive health. The course includes guest lectures from many faculty at the medical school and across campus, in order to provide depth and expertise, as well as interdisciplinary perspectives on women's reproductive health. There will also be connections with campus events, with required attendance at a topical UMS performance, and required viewing of a television series that engages with many of the course's themes.
