Professor Godde is asking you to write a 10 page minimum field assignment about a healing modality takes place within (e.g. acupuncture) or alongside (e.g. curanderismo) our (U.S.) medical system. This field assignment involves learning about healing in a specific context and requires that you engage in participant observation and face-to-face interview.
At least five academic sources must be consulted. These sources will help orient yourself to the nature of healing and its cultural context, but they will not be the focus of the paper. Rather, the focus of the paper is on the healing method as you understand it provided to you by the healer. Non-scholarly, non-peer reviewed publications will not be accepted.
As always, please consult Cougar Courses for full assignment guidelines.
