Viral Modernism: The Influenza Pandemic and Interwar Literature
Dr. Elizabeth Outka, Professor of English, discusses her book, Viral Modernism: The Influenza Pandemic and Interwar Literature, published recently by Columbia University Press. The book investigates how one of the deadliest plagues in history—the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic—silently reshaped the modernist era, infusing everything from T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, to the emergence of viral zombies, to the popularity of séances.
