HST 113 - Introduction to History: The Birds & The Bees

1 course unit
This course offers an introduction to the history of reproduction in the United States from the colonial period to the present.  Topics include histories of birth control, fertility, sex education, pregnancy, maternal and fetal health, gynecology, and childbirth.  We will explore tensions between individuals, community groups, the medical profession, and government agencies regarding sexual and reproductive health in the United States.  We will also examine how medical and public health knowledge and practice have changed over time.  An important part of this course will be to question how religious, socio-economic, and racial status influenced the reproductive lives of men and women throughout American history.
Meets general academic requirement HU.
