ANTH 238 Ethnomedicine in Latin America and the Caribbean

This course takes an anthropological approach to the study of "folk" and
"traditional" health beliefs and practices in Latin America and the
Caribbean. It will focus on cross-cultural notions of the body, health and
illness, and healing practices. This course will also examine the effects
of globalization on local conceptions of health, illness, and approaches to
healing. Students will complete online modules via Canvas and assigned
reading will come from the texts *Ethnomedicine*,*  Sastun: My
Apprenticeship with a Maya Healer*, and* Possessing Spirits and Healing
Selves: Embodiment and Transformation in an Afro-Brazilian Religion*, as
well as articles posted to Canvas.

If you have questions, feel free to contact the course instructor, Dr.
