SSRP 2017: On Immunity

On ImmunityIn fall 2017, new undergraduates will begin their studies at St. Louis College of Pharmacy by reading and responding to Eula Bliss's book, "On Immunity: An Inoculation."

Graywolf Press describes the book stating, "Biss investigates the metaphors and myths surrounding our conception of immunity and its implications for the individual and the social body. As she hears more and more fears about vaccines, Biss researches what they mean for her own child, her immediate community, America and the world, historically and in the present moment. She extends a conversation with other mothers to meditations on Voltaire’s Candide, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, Susan Sontag’s AIDS and Its Metaphors, and beyond. On Immunity is a moving account of how we are all interconnected—our bodies and our fates."

Detailed information on SSRP 2017, including instructions for students, will be distributed soon!
