Overview Overview

This module offers an advance introduction to the broad field of Medical Anthropology, focusing on the classical anthropological contributions to this important subfield, from the work of Farmer Kleinman to current debates about Global health, health care systems; care more generally, and social suffering, medically and psychologically. Students will refer to key work in the area, such as studies of ethno-medicine, critiques of bio-medicine, healing and health care. Students will explore ethnographic work on patient-physician relationships, the social and community contexts of care provision, and the impact of bio-medicine on Western and non-Western populations.
