This module explores the ways in which societies and social institutions have attempted to understand, manage and control cancer. Key themes include defining and describing cancer and its distribution in populations; risks, causes and prevention of cancer (individual and environmental approaches); cancer treatments and the organisation of treatment services; ethical and legal issues in cancer care and research; and cancer policies. An international and comparative approach will be taken throughout with case studies drawn from different historical periods and cultural traditions. Students will have the opportunity to make a field visit relating to cancer treatment, prevention or research.
