SOCI3307
Sociology of Health


Offered during Spring Session
CRN: 91588
Instructor(s): Cohen, Linda Ann


Description
The Sociology of Health is an academic exploration of the social meaning and construction of health. Designed for third year Sociology students, it is also useful for practitioners in health care and ‘lay’ persons interested in health related research. After reviewing the academic perspectives and social determinants of health at the beginning of this course, we examine the social constructions and cultural discourses of the body, health, illness and disablement. We consider how cultural representations and iconographies parley our material realities and how the experiences of health, illness, pain and disablement lead to personal growth or stigmatization and social exclusion. The latter sections of the course take a more institutional approach and students have some choices in their readings.
