Drawn from papers delivered at the Global Studies Symposium on Contagion, held at Whitman College in February, 2010, this collection of essays on health and transmission examines global issues in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Topics discussed include new approaches to conflict prevention in a post-9/11 world, the genealogy of global health security, hybridity in biohorror narratives, and Don Delillo and a haptical theory of culture. Contributors are academics from diverse disciplinary backgrounds from several American universities.
