Childhood And Health
This course examines the interdisciplinary complexity of what constitutes our definition of the “healthy” child. Students examine cross-cultural definitions of “childhood,” and learn that to be “healthy” entails more than a mere absence of disease. Critical inquiry demonstrates that geography, economics, politics, food security, social capital, sexuality, gender, mental health, homelessness, disability and media all play an integral role in the lived experiences and health outcomes of children.
