Abstract

The Introduction to this volume discusses the aesthetic, political and epistemological entanglements of plague’s image and imagination. Going beyond a visual analytical framework, the Introduction will examine how plague’s ‘image’ relates to and cosmological, anthropological, socio-political and medical framings of human society and its interaction with the non-human world. Providing a summary of the volume’s chapters as well as a broader historical and anthropological framing, the Introduction discusses the contribution of plague image and imagination in the rise of shifting epidemiological and public health frameworks and in the emergence and consolidation of the notion of the pandemic, as a pivot of modern epidemiology.
