Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this advanced seminar course, participants will be given the opportunity to explore in-depth an emerging field of study called Health Humanities. Crowford et al (2020) define health humanities as follows: “The health humanities is a rapidly rising field, advancing an inclusive, democratizing, activist, applied, critical, and culturally diverse approach to delivering health and well-being through the arts and humanities. It has generated new kinds of interdisciplinary research, knowledge, and communities of practice globally.”

Method of teaching:
Lectures, guest appearances, discussions, debates – seminar presentations by course participants towards writing a term paper of up to 44,000 characters.

This course aims:
1. To enable students to survey contemporary interdisciplinary approaches to finding solutions to handling infectious diseases that develop into epidemics such as EBOLA and pandemics such as COVID-19.
2. To enable the student to be aware of the scope of Health Humanities, its distinctions from Medical Humanities, and its place in interdisciplinary Humanities, and Public Health disciplines; and
3. To train students to synthetize articles and other types of discourses produced in top-level Humanities and Public Health journals towards producing a publishable piece of their own oh Health Humanities.

Class interaction is in the form of lectures, student presentations, computer-based electronic communications.

A basic introductory course in African studies, or Humanities subjects or Public health is a pre-requisite.

ATTENTION: according to new COVID regulations, the Seminarraum 4 can host only 9 students. The other ones will have to follow the course online.
