Gender and Women's Studies 130AC: This course explores the ways health and illness are produced through biological, social and cultural processes that impact individual bodies, as well as the ways health and illness affect social outcomes of individuals and communities. We will consider the dynamics of various forms of power and the ways that power influences the distribution of illness and well-being in a society. The course focuses on health disparities in the United States, but will also consider how health disparities are generated between the United States and other areas of the world. Our readings and audio and visual materials provide in-depth information about the experience of illness, of caring for people who are not well, and of engaging in political action to alter the inequitable systems that support or generate disparate health conditions.
