GRMN 427 Sickness and Health - Cultural Representations in Medical Discourse
Investigates cultural images and metaphors of disease, with an emphasis on the evolution of normalcy. We will study representations of disease (photography, museum exhibit, literary text), their historic development, and theoretic reflections on media with respect to both historical and contemporary notions of sickness and health.
NOTE Taught in English together with LLCU 327. Students concentrating in German will submit written assignments, tests and examinations in German. Normally students will read German texts in the original.
