SOCIOL 211: Social Inequality

Instructor: Lisa Keister

Semester: Spring 2021

In this class, we went through a broad overview of the factors and effects of social inequality. This ranged from inequality in money to gender to education. Although I am far from understanding the many dimensionalities and consequences of inequality, this class has ingrained a greater appreciation for the opportunities presented to me. I aim to integrate a greater humanitarian approach to my designs so that I can actively work towards absolving the disparities between human health and create a better future.

 

ARTHIST 89S: Archaeology of Death

Instructor: Alicia Jimenez

Semester: Spring 2020

This class detailed the rights and rituals of a variety of different cultures surrounding the death and grieving of loved ones. Taking this class really showed me, that despite the huge variety in cultures, there are fundamental needs that remain the same. Through the focus on the ethics surrounding the disinterring, analysis, and display of corpses, we were able to talk about how a variety of different opinions are necessary in the conversation to develop a solution. Bioethical problems in the design of medicines are the same in that, even though certain stakeholders have less power over the actual decision/design, it is vital to include their opinion.
