About this Unit
Throughout history humans have sought to control their well-being whether it be in response to disease-producing microbes or situations inherent in modern day life. This unit examines an eclectic range of treatments and technologies. Some have been triggered by ancient and enduring infectious foes such as smallpox and the plague or emerging menaces including Ebola and SARS. Others are nested within contemporary living and may be constructed as communicable in the social sense. Selected issues will be explored including agents utilised in the alteration of sensory perception including hallucinogens as well as reaction to and manipulation of body image.
