In Spring 2014, I will be teaching the following courses:
-MHS 242: Bionic Bodies, Cyborg Cultures
A course that examines the history, materiality, and visual representation of prosthetics, assistive technologies, and disabled and post-human bodies using scholarship from disability studies and feminist technoscience studies. The course will be a discussion-based seminar with short readings, analysis of engineered and designed art and technoscientific objects, and a number of iterative speculative design projects. No prerequisites, open and accessible to all disciplinary backgrounds.
-MHS 300: Graduate introduction to Medicine, Health, & Society
This course introduces MHS to students in our graduate program. We will be reading from the history, philosophy, sociology, and anthropology of science and medicine, as well as scholarship in fields such as Science & Technology Studies, feminist history, and design studies.
