Instructor: Nicole Ivy, Visiting Postdoc
IU Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society
This course examines how national ideas about race, health and disease have concurrently informed and been shaped by practices of enslavement and incarceration in the U.S. and the Caribbean. It thinks through the ways that "blackness" has been historically medicalized-as diseased, as a disease itself-and also seriously considers the legacies of racialized health discourse and health care administration in former slave societies.
