Duke English professor Priscilla Wald will discuss and sign copies of her new book, Contagious: Cultures, Carriers, and the Outbreak Narrative. In beautifully crafted prose, this interdisciplinary book—which links science, politics, movies and fiction—"traces the trajectories of 'outbreak narratives,' stories about the spread and conquest of contagious diseases" and helps us understand how our diseases shape the ways we think about ourselves and our relationships.
