Sociology of Medicine and the Body (SOCL 300)

How has our perceptions of bodies and medicine changed over time? How could we see our understanding of our bodies as a result of the society in which we live? How can we see medicine as part of modern politics and economics? How may medicine reinforce inequalities? Students will critically engage with these questions and reflect on what it means to practice medicine in modern societies.

SOCL300 is a 3 credit course.
