About the class

In contemporary American culture, bodies are transformed regularly and in a variety of ways, some of which are deemed natural and healthy while others are reviled as freakish and pathological. The aim of this course is to critically examine the ways in which the body is understood, experienced, and influenced by the medical establishment, and to explore the social, political, and ethical effects of the interactions between gender and health. We will use feminist, queer, disability, and postcolonial theories to illuminate this conversation, exploring historical, philosophical, medical, literary, and popular media texts.
