HIST 340 History of Bodies in Science, Technology, and Medicine 4.0 Credits

We consider bodies as “vessels” of human experience and a category for historical study, exploring what human bodies meant to different cultures in different eras. In examining the ways in which science, technology, and medicine have investigated, depicted and intervened in human bodies in the late-modern era (since about 1700), this class tries to shed a bright light on culture more broadly: on modern ideas of human difference and commonalities, of mortality and morbidity, normalcy and deviance, pleasure and pain, ability and disability.
