IHS 2290 - Global Health in Film & Theater


Using film and theater, students explore central themes within global health including ethics, cultural perspectives, poverty, local vs mass produced productions, and various health issues. Students analyze film and theatrical practices and how they are employed in public forums, in communicating ideas, in social change, and in expressing artistic and political perspectives. They discuss how film and theater can present complex and/or controversial issues, such as HIV/AIDS, rape, female genital mutilation (FGM), infectious diseases, and non-communicable disease and how presentation may vary by audience.This course makes the connections between the liberal arts, in this case film and theater, and clinical sciences.
