Description

This course focuses on the historical and cultural context of mental health in the U.S. It covers an array of topics including phrenology, hysteria, faith, prisons, suicide, 19th-century asylums and mental health practices in higher education settings with critical attention to intersections with race, gender, and class. Focusing heavily, although not exclusively, on the experiences of African Americans, this course includes both academic readings and creative works (literature and film, for example). Some readings focus directly on mental health and others provide context for understanding mental health issues.
