This webinar, arising from NUI Galway’s participation in the new ENLIGHT consortium of European universities, concentrates on literature and narrative in relation to the current crisis. Daniel Carey will be joined by Marysa Demoor, Ghent University (Belgium), Stephen Donovan (Uppsala University, Sweden), and Raili Marling (University of Tartu, Estonia) to discuss in Daniel Defoe’s Journal of the Plague Year and The Storm; coverage of epidemics in 19th-century periodicals; and the representation of epidemics as looming but invisible crises in fiction.
