Ghosts of Doctors Past with Melissa Stein

Medical standards and procedures have been sharply influenced by the past - shaped by social context and a great deal of trial and error. A new course, GWS 309: Health, History, & Human Diversity, will focus on how health care and the medical field has been shaped around social constructions of gender, race, and diversity throughout its history, continuing to play a role in contemporary medicine. In this podcast, Melissa Stein, an assistant professor in the Gender & Women’s Studies Department, discusses the aims, content, and importance of GWS 309 and how it can impact future patients and practitioners of medicine.

Succeed In Sociology

If you are taking SOC 101 this semester, you will want to participate in this discussion of how to excel in sociology by learning to see the world through a sociological lens. Like all other disciplines, sociology has a lot of specific content, but the students who do best are those who develop the ability to use sociological insights to look at the world in a different way. For that reason, courses in sociology often put considerable emphasis on the development of a "Sociological Imagination". Come meet faculty and gain insight on how to succeed in sociology courses while using them as a basis for the meaningful exploration of new ideas.
