GEOG 70.01 Witchcraft and Biomedicine

This course examines the question of health, what it is, who it’s for, and who decides. By focusing on three themes – becoming a doctor or healer; health, illness, and suffering; and health as a nature-society question – through both biomedicine and witchcraft, we approach health from multiple angles. So doing, we will learn about a number of different methodological approaches and theoretical orientations, learning not just about specific case studies, but also about how geographers and related social scientists ask and answer questions.



Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
