Global Health Related Courses

2014-2015 Graduate and Undergraduate Global Health Related Courses


Here are some examples of innovative global health related courses here at Rutgers:

Illness and Exile: Introduction to World Literature:

Course Description: This course introduces the principles of comparative literary analysis. We will study works of various genres and historical moments and practice writing and speaking about literature in personally and intellectually relevant ways. Our readings vary widely, but they all speak to the two related concepts of our theme: illness and exile. As we study this series of texts individually and comparatively, we will ask how writers use literature to understand psychological and physical dislocation on both personal and global scales. Readings will include Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice, Tayeb Salih’s Season of Migration to the North, José Saramago’s Blindness, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and Cho Se-Hui’s The Dwarf

Intro. to Mythology: Global Health Through Mythology

Course Description: By exploring cross-cultural intersections between mythology and medicine, this course will diversify your understanding of “global health.” You will leave this course with your mind opened as to how supposedly basic notions of health and disease, wellness and illness, and physician, healer, and patient are in fact complex, culturally mediated and historically deep representations, imaginations, memories, practices, and performances shaped by a myriad of social, environmental, political, and economic forces. The course therefore taps the exciting interdisciplinary field of comparative literature to inspire sophisticated rethinking of contemporary health care debates in our globalized world.
