Biocultural Synthesis

In this seminar we critically examine the roots of the biocultural approach by exploring various theoretical frameworks from biological and medical anthropology that address the interplay between biology and culture. We explore emerging themes and uses of biocultural frameworks in medical and biological anthropology. We cover a wide variety of the following theoretical approaches and topics including: political economy, bodies and embodiment, critical medical anthropology, race and racism, life history and life course theory, and epigenetics.
