This course examines the relationship between the societal gender order and various forms and constructions of mental illness. Mental illness itself will first be problematized and critically interrogated. How certain mental health conditions come to be articulated with gender identity and sexed bodies - e.g. post-partum depression or delusional violence - will then be investigated both theoretically and empirically.

Essential Capabilities: Ethical Reasoning, Writing
This course assesses student understanding of the topics and problems by means of their written articulation of it; ethical reasoning is required for understanding the normative dimensions of the topics and problems.
