New ‘History of Medicine’ course offered fall semester


A 13th Century anatomical illustration bears little resemblance to reality!

Are you interested in science and medicine? Do you need to fulfill a Humanities requirement?  Then you might be interested in taking a brand-new course called HIST 2294 - History of Western Medicine, Disease and Public Health. 

The new course was developed thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. It will be a two-part series of courses, with part one offered this fall semester, and the second part offered Spring Semester 2018.

T he courses emphasize how diseases were classified, and how medical practices were developed, within the social and cultural context of the era.

The first course focuses on the pre-modern period of Western medicine, primarily in the Near East and Europe, from about 3500 BCE to c. 1700 CE.

The second course focuses on the post-Enlightenment period of Western medicine, primarily in North America and Europe, from c. 1700 to the present. 

If you’d like more information about the course, contact faculty members Ben Pugno and Dea Boster.
