AEGS 320 - Gender, Sexuality, and Health Justice

Credits: 5

(H/SS) This course investigates issues of gender, diversity, and health justice in the interdisciplinary field of Gender and Sexuality Studies.  We explore how issues of power and privilege impact who has access to health and medicine in terms of social inequities. We investigate health inequities as they stem from unequal living conditions. This course questions, in Gender and Sexuality Studies, how might centering a health justice framework cultivate strong and healthy communities? The course aims to give students a solid intellectual foundation for the further study of gender and sexuality as they operate in health and medicine in multiple social, cultural, political, historical, and geographic locations.   Formerly HUMAN 320
