Academic Term and Year
Hamline Plan Letter
Area of Study
GLOB, HSCI, SOCJ
Goals: To learn about the ways in which geographic and social locations as well as institutional structures and global economies affect peoples' interpretations, understandings, and experiences of illness and health. Content: Particular emphasis will be placed on examining differential access to health resources and interrogating ways in which power is utilized to privilege some sectors and deprive other groups of basic standards of health. Health care becomes synonymous with human rights in this framework, and examinations of structural violence help us to look at how global processes interact with more local institutional and economic systems to have a direct impact on the life chances and health of specific communities and individuals.
