Course Description

In this seminar students will explore the experience of American women, in sickness and in health. Students will learn about medical and biological views of woman and women's health, the social context of those views, the development of medical practices and, indeed, a new medical specialty, for the treatment of illness and debility. We will also study care providers: midwives, doctors, nurses, and homemakers. This is a reading-intensive course. Students are expected to complete reading assignments before class and to discuss these readings in class. Students are required to write three essays. This is a writing flag course.
