Section Information for Fall 2021

Before this past year, the evolution of epidemic infectious diseases within modern social and biological conditions was more hypothetical than real to most students. We’ll use the Covid-19 as one case study to understand the importance of understanding diseases from evolutionary, ecological, cultural, and holistic perspectives; placing it in perspective within the human evolutionary experience.
