Narrative Epidemiology (Wm & Mary 4terly)

Concerning our shared interests in literature and medicine (or literature and health, or humanities and medicine, or humanities and health, or culture and health, or culture and the body . . .), the most recent issue of William and Mary Quarterly vol. 70, no. 4 (October 2013), a forum responding to Cristobal Silva’s Miraculous Plagues

Editor’s note: This forum originated as one of the colloquy series organized and moderated by Dennis Moore of Florida State University for the biennial conferences of the Society of Early Americanists. The colloquy on Cristobal Silva’s book was planned in conjunction with the editors of the William and Mary Quarterly and was held at the most recent SEA in Savannah, Georgia, in February 2013. Essays based on these presentations, and Silva’s response to them, inspired the second round of comments.
