CLST360B

Sex, Gender, and (Ancient) Medicine. This course examines topics in the history of medicine that can be traced from antiquity to the modern day, with a particular focus on sex and gender: hysteria and mental illness, dissection and anatomy, reproduction, masculinity, menstruation, circumcision, trans bodies, intersex bodies, fat bodies, and sexuality. There are no prerequisites for the course, though a background in ancient Greek and/or Latin language, ancient Greek and/or Roman history, biology, psychology, or other pre-med courses is helpful.
