This course draws on interdisciplinary research and writings to explore the ways in which the nature, distribution, meanings, and everyday life experiences associated with health, medicine, and illness are shaped by historical, cultural, political, and economic factors. Covering both micro- and macro-sociological terrains, this course utilizes a gendered lens to critically analyze the construction of gendered medical problems and doctor-patient encounters throughout history, women's experiences in a male-dominated health care system, and social movements in response to medical injustices. Prerequisites: SOCI 201 or 250, or WMST 202. No first-year students are admitted. (S)
