"Making Microbes Complex" Workshop

Biology, ecology and the "elephant"

“Making microbes complex: parasites, epidemics and the intellectual origins of disease ecology” is the title of a two-day workshop on 7-9 July at Queen Mary University London. It will bring together prominent scholars in the medical humanities and allied sciences to present a series of papers re-interrogating J. Andrew Mendelsohn’s question “where did the modern, ecological understanding of infectious disease come from?”.

Frédéric will present a paper on:  ‘La Grippe Existe-t-elle?’ Research on influenza in France before 1918 and the predominance of ecological conceptions of disease."
