Making emerging infections: The insecurities that are made when we try to make life safe

Tuesday, 12 March, 2013 - 17:30 to 19:30

Public lecture hosted by the Innovation and Engagement Unit.

How do emerging infections happen and why have they seemingly become more active in the last decade or so?

Drawing on recent fieldwork across the food system, I argue that a paradox is at play whereby the very process of making life safe can generate new bio-insecurities.
