ANTH 298/398 - Global Motherhood

Designed in a reproductive justice framework, Global Motherhood draws on insights from gender studies, history, cultural anthropology and medical anthropology to explore the ways in which motherhood is theorized and experienced by parents who identify as mothers in distinct cultures, countries, and centuries. In the course students will explore diverse experiences of family formation, pregnancy, birth, infant feeding, and approaches to child-rearing and meet mothers from different cultures (in person and/or via Zoom visits to the classroom) to learn about their experiences first hand. Final applied group projects will connect students to issues of importance to a group of mothers. This course will be of particular interest to students in Public Health, Pre-Health, WGS, Anthropology, and Nursing. The course will meet requirements for Taylor and Lane, Structures of Power and Inequality, and/or Global Honors.
