by Prof. Hangen - November 21st, 2013
This website serves as the hub for Tona Hangen’s history course, “Health and Healing in America,” for the Spring 2014 semester at Worcester State University. This course will be taught as a hybrid course, partly online but with about half our time in face-to-face meetings at a classroom (TBA) at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, MA.
The textbooks for this course are listed under the “Readings” tab above.
From this website, you can download the syllabus or access it online, stay up to date with course news and any changes, see the guidelines for the course papers and projects, and follow links to my recommended intellectual history and writing resources on the web.
This site is a blog, meaning it updates frequently and therefore you should either bookmark it or subscribe to it using an RSS feed reader (such as Feedly) to stay up to date with all the course news and updates. To subscribe, just click on the orange RSS symbol in the sidebar. I leave up the previous semesters’ information as an archive for my past students. You can safely ignore any post tagged “Spr2013” or earlier.
If you have questions about the course before we meet in person in January, please feel free to email me, at thangen (at) worcester.edu
