Expanded Course Description
What causes inequalities in health? What forms do these inequalities take? How do competing explanations for why health inequalities exist stack up against each other, and what insights can we gain by approaching these questions about inequality with a sociological lens? This course is designed as an introduction to the broad field of social epidemiology, and in particular it will emphasize the social determinants of health and health inequalities. Students will be encouraged to attain a deeper understanding for how racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, and gender hierarchies intersect and “get under the skin.” We will explore topics such as the living legacy of historical traumas, the social determinants of global pandemics, and the implications of climate change for human health. We will also introduce key concepts from other sub-disciplines of epidemiology, such as infectious disease epidemiology and environmental epidemiology.
