Intro to the History of Medicine
This course introduces students to the key themes, concepts, and methods of the field in a dynamic seminar arranged by thematic modules. Topics covered include What Is Disease? The Healer-Patient Relationship; Seeing the Body; Pain; Medical Technologies. A video introduction to the class is online.
Biomedicine in Context
In this course we will explore the rapid transformation of health care from the late 19th century to the present day. We examine the historical connection between the laboratory and the clinic, the transformation of hospitals and medical schools, the shifting epidemiology of disease over the long 20th century, and the role of medicine and health care in mediating colonial and postcolonial relations between global North and South.
