 The course will survey the history of modern medicine, in particular in the United States, focusing on two particular aspects: psychiatry and mental health, on the one hand, and general medicine on the other. The course aims to provide the methodological skills necessary for a critical examination of the history of modern medicine, including political, social, economic and gender analyses.
