Disease has influenced our civilization, and our civilization has influenced disease. How have the food industry, the media, politics, and technology affected our health? How have different races, genders, sexual orientations, and geographic locations been affected by modern disease? In this course, we will examine the relationship between disease and culture and how life as we know it has been affected. Students will read case studies and have debates about selected topics, and are invited to bring in news articles and primary literature to discuss. Students will choose a topic of interest to research throughout the semester and present to the class in the final week.
Course evaluations are based on attendance, punctuality and meeting deadlines, respect for peers, academic honesty, assignments, final project, and participation in and preparation for class discussions. If you feel you are falling behind on material, it is important that you use the TA and/or professor office hours. You are responsible for contacting me about making up work that you have missed. I will not email you if you missed class to tell you what you missed.
On the last day of the class, you will turn in a portfolio of all of your work, so save everything. Please include a table of contents and your work in sequential order according to the dates they were turned in. Please include the copies of your work that contained my feedback.
