HIST 219 - Social History of Disease and Public Health in Europe


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 3 Hours
Attribute: 3 SS

This course examines the European experience of disease in a series of case studies from the Black Death to HIV/AIDS. Diseases stimulated the creation of new technologies and institutions, shaping cultural values and beliefs that, in turn, shaped the way humans experienced and understood disease. These disease-human interactions changed over time, as people continually modified their societies, environments, and behavior and interacted in new ways with diseases, plants, and animals. Enrollment limit: 30.
Instructor: D. Shull
