Teaching Medical Anthropology

For faculty teaching medical anthropology courses this fall, the following materials may be helpful. I collected these lists with the assistance of Andrea Sankar, co-editor of Medical Anthropology Quarterly, and Janet Dixon Keller, editor of Ethos, in order to save teachers time as they refresh their thinking about these oft-taught topics. Where possible, I linked to the source materials.

Note: In the case of AAA journals, content will be freely available for September, October, and November of 2011. AAA members always have access to these articles amid the half-million full-text items available freely to AAA members on AnthroSource.

Each discussion node includes textbook materials, videos, articles and ethnographies.

I’d be interested in your comments about the lists and any thoughts about medical anthropology classes you’ve taken or taught. Post your thoughts by leaving a reply (bottom) or tell me if you’d like to see any other lists developed by taking the poll.

One Response

  1. What a great resource! Thanks so much for organizing this- it will be a huge help to all who teach medical anthropology. In addition to the topics listed in the poll, I would love to see a list of readings/videos on medicine and citizenship/politics/the state.
