History, Health & Humanities

Our mission is to foster an interdisciplinary environment where health professional students, graduate students, clinicians, and historians can discuss the political, cultural, and social dimensions of the medical profession through a historical lens.

On Anger

This semester, please join us as we explore how and why have medicine and psychiatry been complicit in pathologizing anger. How is the discourse on “civility” leveraged to silence anger and protest? How can Black feminist perspectives rehabilitate anger? An oft-maligned emotion (is it an emotion?), we will explore these questions as well as perspectives on the nature and uses of Anger, particularly when expressed by historically oppressed groups.
