Pandemics of Harlem

Spring 2022

Taught By: Mindy Fullilove

Section: A

CRN: 10893

Credits: 3

Harlem is a legendary New York City neighborhood that suffered from US urban policies of demolition, displacement and disinvestment. These rips to the urban fabric undermined the h=neighborhood's social strengths and unleashed a long series of epidemics, including heroin, AIDS, HIV, crack cocaine addiction, violence, trauma and mental illness related to violence, multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, asthma, obesity and sedentary lifestyles--all before the traumas of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. This course will run in parallel with courses led by Dr. Rebecca Young of Barnard College and Dr. Lesley Rennis of Borough of Manhattan Community College; both Dr. Young and Dr. Rennis will serve as guest lecturers for this New School course. The course will build on the experiences and published papers of Fullilove, Young and Rennis, and will bring in contemporary conversations related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
