Description

Students examine childbirth from an anthropological perspective. Childbirth is a physiological process, but exploring the great variety in how childbirth is managed and made meaningful across the world and in the United States reveals the cultural logics underlying practices and beliefs surrounding childbirth. We will analyze birth as a biosocial process that reveals much about our understandings of gender, the body, medical authority, spiritual authority, community, and individual agency during pregnancy and childbirth. Selected readings, films, advertisements, and other media will serve as material for our analysis.
