06:00PM 07:00PM Great Works Seminar: Going Viral: Viruses and the Meaning We Make of Them: University Event Topic: HumanitiesSchool: Emory CollegeDepartment / Organization: Fox Center for Humanistic InquiryMeeting Organizer/Sponsor: Fox Center for Humanistic InquirySpeaker/Presenter: Historian Martha Groppo, Fox Center Postdoctoral FellowEvent Open To: All (Public)Cost: FreeRegistration / R.S.V.P. link: foxcenter@emory.eduContact Name: Fox Center for Humanistic InquiryContact Email: foxcenter@emory.eduViruses have baffled humans for far longer than we have known of their existence. Not seen under a microscope until the 1930s, they have long been understood primarily through their deadly disease effects. Although diseases often act on different bodies in similar ways, however, explanations for them have varied widely depending on historical moment and cultural context. In this seminar, we will explore some of the many meanings humans have made of viruses in their efforts to understand and manage terrifying symptoms. Viruses have often inspired important innovation, but they have also frequently tested the limits of our understanding of disease: Viruses have been critical in the development of vaccines, for example, but they have also invited debate about the definition of life itself (viruses kill, but are they alive?). After an introductory, interdisciplinary session, we will study three deadly viruses that have left their indelible mark on the history of medicine, but also on the story of humankind. This seminar will be moderated by historian Martha Groppo, Fox Center Postdoctoral Fellow, and will meet via Zoom from 6-7:00pm on the following Wednesday evenings during the 2021 spring semester: February 10, 17 & 24, March 3 & 10. Participation is limited, and reservations are required. The Zoom meeting link will be sent via email the day before each session date. Everyone from the Atlanta community is welcome and invited to join us for this free seminar.
