Research Project Description:
Choose one (1) of the following diseases: Bubonic Plague, Smallpox, Leprosy, SARS, Polio, HIV/AIDS, Ebola, or H1N1
Explain in detail, the etiology and epidemiology of the disease and trace the history of how it affected the human population for the time period in which it was prevalent. What were the attempted medical and social interventions and preventions during that time period? You also need to include a detailed discussion of how the disease fits into either the ecological/evolutionary model of disease, or the political-economy model of disease. Validate this discussion with sources. If a medical anthropologist could go back in time to contribute to the understanding of this disease, what specific contributions would they make? You need to bring in the course concepts in order to validate your discussion. For example, if there was stigma surrounding the disease, what type of information about the stigma of this disease would an anthropologist research. What cultural factors relate to the rise and spread of this disease, etc. How would a medical anthropologist be able to contribute to the understanding of this disease?
