Western Women in Medicine
This topic, Western Women in Medicine, is a unique perspective of how women have influenced medicine in the Western World. This class will present women’s history as both an integral part of our understanding of Medical Sciences as well as a unique subject worthy of its own historical investigation. In this class, we will utilize women’s historical experiences as a window into how medical knowledge and practice evolved to what we see today. By centering our attention on women’s influence through four major time periods and three transitional interludes, we will be able to re-examine the conventional historical narrative and better understand how women’s involvement in medical advances have changed how we approach science. Given the diversity and intersectionality of women’s experiences, our lectures, readings, and discussions will center of women–and men–from diverse racial, class, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds, and the different science/research practices throughout our time periods.
Exploring Humanity through Nature
In this particular section, we will read, write, discuss, and explore the interplay between nature and humanity; many of the classes will be taught outside in a field setting as weather permits. (As Needed) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
