Medical anthropology has traditionally addressed illness and its treatment among human societies in their wide-ranging multiplicity. Rather than considering medical systems and practices as monolithic, universal approaches to health, though, medical anthropologists document their sociocultural specificities to underscore how structural, ideological, and sociocultural circumstances are relevant to our understanding of human disease and wellbeing. This course will focus on Latine/x communities as a case study and entry point to examine, from this disciplinary perspective, how minoritized peoples fare under the dominant biomedical paradigm that characterizes medical treatment in U.S. society.
