As previously announced, the Reluctant Internationalists are organising a series of walking tours around London showcasing the city as the home of international projects and presenting London as a magnet for international collaboration and a laboratory of ideas. The second of these walking tours will explore epidemic response in London and will be led by Dr Dora Vargha.
The Epidemic London tour through Bloomsbury will explore local responses to global epidemics, which in turn shaped international epidemic management and scientific collaboration. The tour will narrate a century of epidemic response in London from Henry Wellcome’s diphtheria antitoxin to Peter Piot’s work on Ebola. Through these stories we will invite participants to understand current global epidemic challenges in historical context.
The walk will start at 1.00pm on Friday 25th November 2016 from outside the entrance to the Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE. The tour is open to all and is free to attend.
