The relationship between gender and health is the central focus of this course, and how this relationship is conditioned by race-ethnicity, sexuality, and social class. We consider how sociopolitical and environmental factors influence gendered associations with physical and mental health. In addition, this is a course on how to do the disciplinary work of sociology. Social policies surrounding health have been crucial to creating our current understandings of our system, and this course will give insight into how policies are crafted through a peer reviewed process that relies on critical feedback from sociologists engaged in the same project, in this case, the other students in this course.
