ANTH 5250 - Spirits and Medicine

This course explores how healing is linked to belief and in turn how beliefs about well-being, illness, and treatment are culturally prefigured. Students will examine healing practices in the United States and cross-culturally as they relate to belief and consciousness, including western medicine and alternatives, spirit possession and trance, and methods of divination.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to Upperclass and Graduate Students.
