Globalization: Current Issues & Cross-Cultural Perspectives

Section 64755

  • Note: This section of WRIT 150 invites students to examine and write about issues in the fields of medicine and health care, from the practical to the philosophical. The course will allow students to follow their own interests and commitments, whether these concern the intersection of technology and medicine, bioethical issues, representations of illness in art, or any other matter relevant to health and healing. We will approach such issues as complex historical and cultural constructions open to human intervention and invention, using them as a means of developing the vitally interconnected skills of writing, thinking, and ethical engagement.
