SOCIETY, ILLNESS, & HEALTH in Summer 2021 (PY30693WK1)

This course examines health and illness in a social, cultural and historical context. The first part of the course focuses on physical or behavioural 'symptoms' without any apparent organic aetiology (e.g. sick-building syndrome), appearing in members of specific groups or localities (socio-genic illness). The second part of the course considers socio-cultural shaping and experience of other more prevalent disorders.
