HNRS 133 - Dr. Jarrod Hyam

Religion, Healing, and Medicine

This course introduces a comparative and cross-cultural approach to the relationship between religion and healing. Traditional healing modalities will be explored from a variety of cultural contexts, including South Asian, East Asian, and indigenous American religious healing systems. Western biomedical systems will be presented in dialogue with these traditional systems, reflecting the synergies, tensions, and cultural negotiations occurring in contemporary global contexts.
