A Global-Local Health Initiative

Development of a cluster of three undergraduate courses to bring the humanities into dialogue with health sciences.

Faculty at Hofstra University propose to develop an innovative cluster of undergraduate courses – “Immigrant and Refugee Health,” “History of Disease and Medicine,” and “Geography of Global Health” – examining how global processes, both geographical and historical, connect to local health issues in immigrant communities on Long Island. The word “glocal” in our title refers to global knowledge within a local context. One of the hallmarks of our cluster will be experiential learning and a close collaboration with local community partners such as The Hispanic Counseling Center and SHALI. Additionally, the project connects cultural and humanities programs including Latin and Caribbean Studies, Global Studies, American Studies, LGBTQ+ Studies, Sustainability Studies as well as history, geography and health.

Project fields:
Cultural History; Geography; History and Philosophy of Science, Technology, and Medicine
