POLI 394-02  Food Politics and Policy in America
TR 01:20 pm-02:50 pm CARN 208 Michael Zis
The U.S. industrial food system provides a lot of food per acre at a relatively inexpensive price and, yet, has been heavily criticized for its effects on public health, worker safety and well-being, animal welfare, cropland consolidation, and the environment – just to name a few. Are these criticisms merited? To whom ought they be directed? To what extent have power and choices, at the collective or individual level, played a role in fostering the development of this system? If change is desirable, what form ought it take and how ought it best be realized? We will consider these questions by exploring the role that politics and policy, broadly speaking, play in shaping the supply and access to food in America. To stay focused on “real world” problems and solutions, the class will host local advocates and policymakers, take two field trips, and collaborate with a local food organization on an advocacy project to be completed by semester’s end.

Spring 2016 Class Schedule - updated February 8, 2016 at 08:00 am

Number/Section  Title
Days Time Room Instructor
 
ANTH 230-01  Ethnographic Interviewing
MWF 09:40 am-10:40 am CARN 05 Anna Jacobsen
 
ANTH 380-01  Adv Topics in Medical Anthropology: Stigma and Disabilities

ANTH 394-02  Evolutionary Medicine
M 07:00 pm-10:00 pm CARN 06A Laura Hauff
*First day attendance required* Evolutionary medicine is a relatively new field that applies evolutionary insights to medical issues in order to understand problems of human health. This course provides an introduction to how human evolutionary and cultural history shape health and health disparities among contemporary global human populations. While biomedicine tends to focus on identifying proximate mechanisms that give rise to disease and malfunction, evolutionary medicine complements this approach by providing ultimate explanations to explain why disease occurs at all, and to contribute to a holistic solution to improving human health. We will first discuss evolutionary, adaptation, and life history theory. Then we will explore the application of evolutionary biology to human development, as well as both infectious and chronic diseases. Topics include reproductive conflicts, childbirth, and lactation; pathogen evolution, resistance, and virulence; ecology and evolution of emerging diseases; behavioral and psychiatric health; and aging, menopause, and cancer. The two main goals of this course are to understand the processes of evolutionary theory and adaptation as they relate to modern humans and to understand how insights from evolutionary theory can be used to explain current patterns of global human variation, health, and disease. Prerequisite: ANTH 111 or ANTH 115, or permission of instructor.

*First day attendance required; ACTC student may register on December 4th with permission of the instructor* This course will cover the role of nucleic acids and genetic information in the formation of cancer. We will look at dysfunction at the molecular level using basic research to illuminate how cancer arises. Students will read and present on primary literature related to the understanding and treatment of cancer. The class will culminate in writing a grant related to the study and treatment of cancer.

ECON 294-02  Health Economics
MWF 02:20 pm-03:20 pm CARN 305 Samantha Cakir
The field of health economics applies microeconomic theory to the study of health care, drawing on concepts from public, labor, and development economics and industrial organization. The healthcare industry is one of the largest in the US, representing nearly 18% of GDP and comprising a large share of the typical household budget. The role of government regulation in healthcare is significant and unique to the industry. This class will review topics relevant to the healthcare and health insurance industries in the US, other developed countries, and developing nations including the determinants of demand, pricing of healthcare services, the role of insurance and its reforms, incentives and hurdles for health technology innovations, and the role of health in economic development. We will also examine the traditional methods for evaluating healthcare services including cost benefit and cost effectiveness analysis. This course will count as a 200A elective.

INTL 494-01  Pandemics: When Globalization and Diseases Collide
W 07:00 pm-10:00 pm CARN 404 Christy Hanson
*Course to meet in Carnegie 411* Historically, infectious diseases have been among the great equalizers of nations. Infectious diseases cross borders with little respect for societal hierarchy or political position in the world order. Pandemics have repeatedly challenged the notion of the nation state, religious and political ideology and social structures. Modern day pandemics have the ability to spread further geographically, reflecting our ever more globalized world. Pandemics can concurrently reflect strong nationalist (almost isolationist) tendencies, alongside growing reliance on a global governance structure. However, they also increasingly reveal society’s marginalized peoples and their limited participation in and attention from government. Through the stories of historical and modern day pandemics, students will explore what pandemics can show us about disparities in development, social order(s), governance models, political and societal priorities and norms, inter-connectedness of nations / peoples, and economic decision-making.

By exploring fiction, personal memoir and film, we will investigate such questions as: what are the boundaries between sickness and health, normality and disability? What roles do physicians and other healers play in both Russian and American culture? What links exist between literature and empathy?
