Focus: Race, Health inequalities and Medical Racism
This final assessment asks that you focus on keywords that have come up for you throughout the
semester. Many scholars use this focus on “keywords” to think through categories and concepts,
how they have changed through time and how they illuminate larger social, cultural, political, and
economic processes. They build upon Raymond William’s classic text: Keywords: A Vocabulary of
Culture and Society (1976/1983). We will use William’s interest in mapping out the relationship
between language and meaning and knowledge as an inspiration for the work to wrap up the
semester as we think critically about the assumptions that still root so much about health and bodies
and minds. This final project allows you to focus on a theme that you are most interested in!
Students will be asked to select six keywords from six different readings assigned throughout the
semester. Students will 1) identify the keywords; 2) discuss keywords explaining how the author’s
work with the term and how linked to author’s argument (proper citation required); 3) use the
keyword and its significance to develop student project.
For this final assessment, you have two options:
• 5-7 page paper that develops six keywords as outlined above.
• The paper must use SIX IN-CLASS readings in a well-developed fashion (This means that the
text’s argument must be indicated and an idea worked with—not just thrown in a sentence).
• 5-7 pages in length (or 3-4 pages if pursuing creative work)
• 1 inch margins on all sides
• Double spaced
• 12 point font
• Pages numbered
• Proper in text citation
• Proper References Cited
• Proofread for grammatical errors
• Graded on cogency of argument and clarity of writing
1. Please pay attention to the organizational aspects of your paper. Make sure that you have a clear
introduction and a thesis statement about your keywords in the first paragraph that guides the
reader through both your argument and the way that you will develop this argument. The body of
the paper should explain your keywords and provide the description of what you are talking about.
End with a wrap-up, a conclusion that has some synthesizing points.
