Global War and Disease: The Making of Modern Bodies

Dr Erica Charters 

Until the early twentieth century, disease always killed and incapacitated far more soldiers and sailors than did combat. ​Overseas colonial warfare further challenged European forces to adapt to new environments, both physically and culturally.  This talk examines how foreign disease environments shaped European warfare and European identity, including scientific concepts of race, during a crucial period of Western empire building.  It provides a history of disease in imperial war to reflect on notions of progress, both in medicine and in warfare. 

Tickets £65, with a limited number also available at the reduced price of £45 for alumni who matriculated in 2000 or later.
