Week 1 Open-ended Question(s):
The readings for this week introduce a broad, though by no means exhaustive, range of issues pertinent to medical anthropological concerns. I’d like you to hone in on one specific topic and/or a specific passage or passages in one of the readings that you found particularly surprising or interesting. Has it made you think differently or perhaps more deeply about a certain issue? If so, in what ways? What questions have been raised in your mind? In your discussions, please be sure to cite specific examples and relevant passages from the readings to support your answers.
