Description

Understanding women's reproductive health requires understanding the intersections of reproductive bodies and gender, race, class, culture, geography, economic status and nation. This course will explore the continuum of women’s reproductive lives, including menstruation, sex, pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, contraception, abortion, and birth, among other topics. The course uses biomedical, feminist, reproductive justice, health disparities and global health frameworks to address the complexities of reproductive health. Students will learn how to think critically and use interdisciplinary lenses to complicate biomedical understandings of reproduction. Most weeks, the course features guest lectures from faculty at the medical school and across campus, in order to provide depth and expertise, as well as interdisciplinary perspectives on reproductive health. There will also be connections with current events, with required viewing of a television series that engages with many of the course's themes.
