Description: 

Bodies are strange.  They grow, they change, they do funny things.  We are judged on how our bodies look. Our bodies let us do things in the world.  


Mature Material: Students taking this course must feel comfortable discussing basic bodily functions, looking at images of bodies, and respect sharing by other students about relevant personal experiences.  Sexuality, basic knowledge of sexual reproduction, and gender norms will be discussed in a mature, appropriate, and inclusive way. 


Topic Sections: 


Part 1:  Body Images - Starts February 12

How do we learn what bodies look like? 

What is “normal”?  What is “abnormal”?  Why does this matter? 

How can ideas about “normal bodies” hurt people? 

How can we change our assumptions about “normal bodies”? 


Part 2: Un/Healthy Bodies - Starts March 11

How do we measure whether a body is healthy or unhealthy? 

What are factors that contribute to health or un-health? 


Part 3: Different Bodies - Starts April 8

Disability and difference

What is a “dis-ability”?
