AP/SOSC 4142 3.00   Health, Medicine and Creative Resistance

Course Description:

This course considers the way in which researchers and practitioners have used arts-based methods and methodologies in order to engage communities, disseminate findings and intervene in critical issues related to health. Students will examine how creative resistance can function as a powerful tool for social change and a necessary component in knowledge creation and translation. We will explore examples of health-related art stemming from existing creative practices in addition to art created explicitly for the purposes of health promotion and intervention. We will also consider art produced in the context of disability and crip cultural movements and think through how this work informs interdisciplinary health studies. We will consider both the exciting possibilities of arts-based approaches to the study of health, medicine and disability as well as the ways in which creative labour can be appropriated by neoliberal institutions. Students will have an opportunity to think through core questions regarding the innovations and limitations related to the use of art in health research and practice. Prerequisites: the completion of at least 84 credits, including AP/SOSC 2110 6.00 or AP/SOSC 2150 9.00, or written permission of the Instructor.
