'How Gracefully the Dead Dogs Float': Building and Public Health in Early Modern England

10th November, 2020

In her talk, Ann-Marie Akehurst will consider epidemics related to their urban settings. Drawing on London's Great Plague, the Marseilles Plague and the 19th-century Cholera Pandemics, she will illustrate past and present resonances between the reactions of populations to epidemic disease. Ultimately she will argue epidemics require ambitious resilient cathedral thinking projecting architectural, and infrastructural, interventions, facilitating decades-long projects with in-built flexibility and redundancy.
