This course will explore a range of contemporary contested illnesses in the United States through the lens of anthropological and feminist theories of the body. These illnesses include, but are not limited to, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, and chronic Lyme disease, and are perceived to be more prevalent among women. In the first half of the class, we will familiarize ourselves with critical ideas and concepts in the anthropology of gender and biomedicine. In the second half of the class, we will use our newly acquired theoretical toolkit to examine and better understand the sociocultural and biopolitical dimensions of the abovementioned contested illnesses.
