Class Description:
This course explores how interlocking gender and race relations have influenced the management and experience of health and disease among people of African descent from the periods of slavery and colonialism until the present. It traces how the pathologization of the African body has engendered inequitable - and unethical - treatment of black people in the clinical practice of medicine, the execution of health research, and the management of public health systems. At the same time, it examines strategies adopted by populations of African descent to combat harmful stereotypes and hold authorities accountable for disproportionate distributions of disease in their communities. Sub-topics include medical experimentation on black populations in European colonies and in the US; the construction of conditions such as sickle cell as "black" disease in the US; the clinical, scientific, and discursive exclusion of blacks from chronic diseases of "civilization" or "development" such as cancer; the global politics of HIV/AIDS research, prevention, and treatment; the (mis)management of "tropical" disease such as Ebola, Zika, malaria and sleeping sickness; and strategies to control the African reproductive body through policies related to marriage, prostitution, sterilization, abortion, and contraception. This is a highly interdisciplinary course that draws on medical sociology and anthropology, history, science and technology studies (STS), epidemiology, global health, population and development, and human rights.

Class Description:
Even after a century, the Armenian Genocide remains one of the most politically charged and controversial historical issues with broad foreign policy implications. This course will provide an in-depth overview of the Armenian Genocide with a particular emphasis on the rise of Turkish nationalism, the structure of the Armenian Genocide, and its social, cultural, and ideological components. The course then will seek to examine the efforts to come to terms with the extermination of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire by discussing its denial, (placing it in the larger context of the phenomenon of genocide denial), and the consequences of such denial on Armenian and Turkish societies. At the conclusion of the course students will have an extensive knowledge of the Armenian Genocide and its contemporary social and political significance.

Class Description:
This 2 credit (pass-fail) course is designed to help you make the transition from Global Studies to whatever it is that you are going to do next, be it looking for a "real" job, charting a non-traditional course (e.g., doing some sort of travel/volunteer work experience, using paid work to support what you really want to do), or continuing one's education, via a professional or academic program. We will have a series of guest speakers come in to talk about different jobs and their own career paths, and students will do some research on the sectors and occupations that most interest them. We will also work with CLA Career Services on resume writing and other activities. Part of the course will be student directed, in that we will tailor it to meet your needs. By the end of the semester, students should feel ready to leave the university and to take the next step.
Who Should Take This Class?:
Global Studies juniors and seniors
