  • Instructor(s): Chatters, Linda
  • Not offered 2018-2019
  • Prerequisites: Permission of instructor, graduate standing. The course is primarily for doctoral students.
  • Description: This interdisciplinary, graduate level seminar is designed to: 1) explore in an in-depth fashion racial/ethnic disparities in health in the United States and approaches to reducing those disparities; and 2) to support the development of scholars prepared at the doctoral level to pursue research and interventions to address these disparities. Weekly seminar discussions will focus on summary, discussion (of theory, content and methods), and critique of articles on racial and ethnic health disparities from a variety of disciplinary perspectives (e.g., sociology, political science, health behavior and health education, epidemiology, health management and policy, urban planning, psychology). The seminar will focus on developing a rigorous critical analysis of these disparities and an understanding of the potentials and limitations of various approaches to addressing them (e.g., health care system, behavioral strategies, community change, and policy interventions). As part of the seminar, participants will present and engage in critical discussion of their own emergent research interests. Grades will be given at the end of the second semester of the two-semester course sequence.
