Concepts of Infection, March 29-31, 2007, University of Bristol (UK)

‘Conceptions of Infection’ is an interdisciplinary conference, bringing together specialists in the history of medicine and the humanities in order to explore the ways in which infections are imagined, represented, and theorized. Papers may engage with any aspect of infection, from historical examples of single diseases and epidemics (such as plague, cholera, leprosy, syphilis, AIDS, bird flu), to more abstract concepts of pollution and contamination. Topics can include: the ways in which ideas of infection relate to race, gender, sexual orientation, miscegenation, and conceptions of the body and of the self; the language of infection and its use as metaphor; how real and imagined diseases are represented in literature, film, painting, and book illustration; and the ways in which discourses of infection are employed for political, psychological, and polemic purposes.
