GEOG 68.01 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.

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.
