Source: University of Cambridge. Published: 9/2018. This interdisciplinary research project collects and analyzes photographs, as well as other visual documents, of the third plague pandemic, which broke out in 1855 in Southwest China (Yunnan) and raged across the globe until 1959, causing the death of approximately 12 million people. The project’s hypothesis is that this visual representation played a pivotal role in the formation of both scientific understandings and public perception of infectious disease epidemics in the modern era. The database can be searched by authors, titles, keywords, and type. (Video or Multimedia)
