Description

This course is an introduction to the field of global health. We will develop a toolkit of historical and analytical approaches for identifying and managing practical issues that arise in global health interventions. We will then apply these tools to case studies from around the world, using a biosocial model drawing on a range of disciplines (including anthropology, clinical medicine, history, public health, economics, and delivery science). Finally, students will use these analytical methods to construct their own consult-style biosocial analysis of a contemporary global health intervention, both as an educational tool and as a portfolio component for further work in global health or related fields. With attention to historical precedent and a critical sociology of knowledge, we will explore how global health problems are defined and constructed, and how global health interventions play out in expected and unexpected ways.

Course Requirements:

Class participation, two mid-term exams, two short analytic papers, and a final project.

Intended Audience:

International Studies Majors.

Class Format:

Content is divided into four themed parts explored through readings, lecture, and discussion.
