Science and Democracy
AS.196.302 (01)

What role does scientific expertise play (or not play) in American democracy? What role should scientific expertise play (or not play) in American democracy? These are the key questions we’ll address in this class, focusing on a wide range of examples such as government responses to public health crises, environmental crises, and war. We’ll tackle these questions from multiple angles, drawing on ideas from across the social sciences, including political science, psychology, sociology, economics, history, and communication. We’ll focus largely on the United States, though in some cases compare the US experience with other democracies to understand how unique aspects of our democratic institutions influence the link between science and democracy.

Medical Humanitarianism
AS.230.335 (01)

Humanitarian organizations play life-preserving roles in global conflicts, and have front-row views of disasters ranging from the 2010 Haiti earthquake to the 2011 Fukushima tsunami in Japan. Yet even while they provide vital assistance to millions of people in crisis, such organizations are beset by important paradoxes that hinder their capacity to create sustainable interventions. They work to fill long-lasting needs, but are prone to moving quickly from one site to the next in search of the latest emergency. They strive to be apolitical, yet are invariably influenced by the geopolitical agendas of global powers. How do such contradictions arise, and what is their impact upon millions of aid recipients around the world? Drawing on case studies from South Sudan to Haiti, this course addresses these contradictions by exploring how and why medical aid organizations attempt, and sometimes fail, to reconcile short-term goals, such as immediate life-saving, with long-term missions, such as public health programs and conflict resolution initiatives.

The Politics of Mental Health
AS.230.358 (01)

This course examines how the psy disciplines – psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy and related fields – create knowledge about the mind, and how these fields have in turn shaped political and social life since early 20th century. We will explore how the psy disciplines have proven useful to projects of state building by reconstructing the human mind as a calculable, quantifiable entity, one that can be measured and governed across diverse educational, military, and healthcare settings. We will then ask how psychiatric categories such as bipolar disorder and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) were created, and consider their impact on both the legal/medical management of illness and on lay and expert notions of sanity and normality. Finally, we will examine the rising influence of humanitarian mental health interventions, and immerse ourselves in the debates they have engendered concerning the use of psychotherapy to alleviate suffering in war and disaster zones.

Cohorts and Trials: Interpreting Evidence in Epidemiology
AS.280.457 (01)

How do we know smoking is a risk factor for heart attacks? Why did the NIH invest millions of dollars into the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study or the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT)? When does the FDA accept a vaccine or drug as safe for use? Why do studies disagree about whether coffee is good or bad for health? This course delves into how two major study designs—cohorts and clinical trials—are used to build and interpret a body of epidemiologic evidence, including the practical context of how cohorts and trials are devised, proceduralized, and funded within the larger scientific enterprise. This is a discussion-based class; active sessions modeled after research journal clubs and consortium workgroups drives peer-to- peer learning along with literature-based lecture.

International Nutrition in the Time of the COVID-19 Pandemic
AS.280.463 (01)

Malnutrition remains one of the largest public health issues in low and middle income countries (LMICs); it has been estimated that 1 in 9 individuals globally remain hungry, and malnutrition related factors contribute to 45% of deaths in children under 5 years old. While global progress has reduced the burden of malnutrition in the past two decades, much of the progress could be undone by the impacts of COVID-19. This course will review the causes and the burden of malnutrition in LMICs and will provide students with the understanding of the various types of malnutrition. This course will discuss the multi-sectoral nature of malnutrition and the role each sector has in addressing malnutrition. In light of recent events, many of these sector’s normal operations have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and disease transmission mitigation strategies. We will examine how the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced these sectors and the anticipated effects on malnutrition. This is a Gordis Teaching Fellowship course.
