Module Overview:

This unit will provide critical debate and analysis of intersections of gender, violence and modes of resilience in societies affected by violence, with a particular focus on urban environments. Drawing upon ethnographic case examples from Latin America students will examine intersecting forms of violence, health disparities and their impact on the life course through applied Medical Anthropology; Global Public Health; Gender and Sexuality; Critical Life Course Perspectives; and Humanitarian Practice. Though life-course, health and ageing are the focus of the course rather than violence itself, we will examine how forms of violence intersect with the ordinariness of daily life, and in turn what the consequences are for equity and quality in healthcare. Students will learn how to apply a critical life course approach and gender analysis to a variety of issues related to modes of resilience, global health and intersecting forms of gender-based violence in cross-cultural environments.
