Infectious Disease on the Run

Infectious Disease on the Run

It will be offered Tues. 5-8pm and will be offered by Peggy Battin, Ph.D and Wendy Hobson-Rohrer, MD.

This course aims to introduce students to a range of black perspectives on some of the most pressing issues of our time. By black perspectives we do not mean perspectives based solely on identity or community belonging, though many of the authors we will consider identify as black. Rather, we will consider how black history, narratives of black cultural difference, persisting social inequalities, black movements for social justice, and the everyday experiences of black people have shaped, countered, and sometimes transformed mainstream ideologies about issues such as policing and incarceration, education, climate issues, reproductive rights, science and technology, political economy, healthcare, government and politics, among other issues. Conversely, we aim to demonstrate how varying perspectives within black communities have transformed the meaning of blackness. Learn more:
