ANTH 12.22 The Culture, Science, and Practice of Wellness

The course will provide students with an understanding of the emergence of ‘wellness’ as a cultural category and will encourage students to interrogate how wellness intersects with and diverges from other related categories of ‘health,’ ‘illness,’ and ‘disease.’ The course draws on perspectives from medical and psychological anthropology and students will be introduced to evidence-based strategies and skills that can be applied at the individual and the community level to foster wellness. A key strength of this course is its multidisciplinary scope and the opportunity for students to engage with faculty from diverse scholarly and professional backgrounds. By requiring students to work across the intersection of anthropological, clinical, and public health fields, this course offers a unique opportunity for students to experience the challenges and potential of collaborative and engaged forms of scholarship.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
