Section Information for Fall 2022
Description: this seminar focuses on epistemic injustice (and justice) in the intersecting domains of biomedical research, patient care, and public and global health. We will start with selected foundational readings in feminist and critical race epistemology and epistemic injustice, examining the work of scholars like Sandra Harding, Maria Lugones, Miranda Fricker, Charles Mills, and Iris Marion Young. From there we examine epistemic injustice as it occurs in biomedical research, patient care, public health and global health, especially humanitarian action, studying each in turn. Finally, we turn to consider the work of scholars proposing new epistemic approaches aimed at advancing justice for research participants, patients, and communities around the world. Students will lead one seminar session, write one research brief and one research paper, and present their work at the end of the semester.
Enrollment limited to students with a class of Advanced to Candidacy, Graduate, Junior Plus, Non-Degree or Senior Plus.
