2019
Subject Name: 
Anthropology
Course Number: 
297SR
Institution: 
UMass Amherst
This course explores and analyzes topics pertaining to sex, reproduction, and culture in the United States and abroad through a medical anthropology lens. We cover themes of reproductive agency, contraception, reproductive politics, and more through an approach of the life course. Articles, films, news reports, and other materials will be used to discuss weekly case studies corresponding to each thematic topic. As a designated "service-learning" course endorsed by the office of Civic Engagement and Service-Learning (CESL) at UMass Amherst, this course provides opportunities for students to engage in service beyond the classroom. Appropriate input from a community partner will guide the service, designed to contribute to the public good, and inform topics discussed throughout the semester. It also serves as a foundational course for the certificate in Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice (RHRJ).
