ANTH 374 - Heath and Expertise in Africa

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
This class examines the social and cultural dimensions of health and expertise in Africa in historical and contemporary contexts. From the interpretation of archaeological ruins to the depiction of African technoscience in fiction, this class will examine the politics of science, technology, and medicine. We will examine the ways in which the categories of Africa, science, and technology have been mutually constructed, and consider a range of contemporary global health interventions on the African continent. Field trip(s) required.
