Women's Global Health Movements
- This class investigates the role of women leaders in global movements for health and justice. Students will gain a better understanding of how the contemporary global political-economic context both constrains health activists and offers opportunities for transformative change.
Gender, Environmental Justice, & Health
This class identifies market forces and practices, including pursuit of economic growth, that degrade our environment and disproportionately impact women’s health and livelihoods. Students leave the class understanding that environmental pollution is a symptom of a toxic political-economy, that it increases both chronic and emergent health crises, and that health advocates can be pivotal in preventing disaster and reversing toxic trends.
Debt Crisis & Women's Health
- This class explores the economic and social roots of debt and the resulting economic and public health crises it produces. Students will explore structural alternatives to debts and begin envisioning an economy less marked by crisis.
*Classes begin Tuesday, September 1, 2020.
