Imagining Illness
Book Description:

Imagining Illness explores the diverse visual culture of public health, broadly defined, from the nineteenth century to the present. The contributors examine historical and contemporary visual practices—Chinese health fairs, documentary films from the World Health Organization, illness maps, fashions for nurses, and live surgery on the Internet—delving into the political and epidemiological contexts underlying their creation and dissemination.
