P. Wright (1988)Babyhood: The Social Construction of Infant Care as a Medical Problem in England in the Years Around 1900
This paper is inspired by an outbreak of pulmonary tuberculosis in the British EastMidlands city of Leicester in 2001. In an era characterized by unprecedentedadvances in Western medical science an event of this kind might appear surprising.It challenges the feeling of wellbeing held in many Western countries, particularlyin relation to diseases that appear both temporally and spatially distant. The paperexamines how the event was reported in regional and national newspaper media andconsiders the significance attached to scale in the interactions between experts,the media and the public. In our analysis we mobilize a particular reading based ontwo biological metaphors, the membrane and the gene. We use this reading toreconsider the connectivity between disease, nation and identity in a world that isincreasingly fluid, mobile, anxious and uncertain.
