The experience of illness as determined by historical, social, and psychological contexts; narrative as a mode of both understanding and managing illness, pain, loss, and the injustice of suffering.
As a result of completing the course, students will know conceptual terms for understanding the experience of illness. Students will evaluate the historical context for the development of such terms. Students will demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the material by applying concepts to literary representations of experience in writing two thesis-driven argumentative papers and delivering two oral presentations.
