HistoryHIS 263 Histories of Science and Medicine in the Global South

Focuses on the histories of science and medicine in the Global South. While these fields have historically been dominated by scholarship focusing on Europe and North America, in recent years, work produced by scholars of the Global South has begun to reshape these fields. This seminar critically considers the body of historical scholarship with an eye toward the following questions: Are there common themes that define this body of historiography? What do works that fall within this genre have to teach us about other bodies of cultural, political and economic historical work? How is it productive to think with the Global South as a category of analysis?
