Welcome to the course blog. The purpose of this online media learning tool is to engage with the material in diverse platforms and in real time. Every Friday at the end of the week, you will be asked to submit a written response to the readings of the week, challenging the continuities and contesting the changes in ideas about race in science and medicine. As a historical tool, this blog will centralize the class discussion and communication between peers, teaching fellows, and faculty.


Please read the book before class, and write a 2 page (minimum) length response to the arguments in the readings on a word document. Then copy and paste onto blog to ensure the minimum length. In addition to your own published blogs, you will be required to respond to one peer’s post and begin to collaborate or discuss viewpoints. Responses and feedback will be given via the comment boxes from peers, teaching fellows, and the professor.
