Session-Wise Course Curriculum

Course Structure:

The sessions will be organized as open discussions and will be interspersed with short mini-lectures. A list of papers & book chapters will be circulated a week prior to the course, which will have to be read by the participants prior to the class.

In 4 sessions of 150 minutes each, the class will discuss the large scholarship on cholera, plague, smallpox, and malaria to understand the changing relationship between disease and Indian society. The aim of these sessions is not to explain the COVID experience better but to discover how history sheds light on the dynamics of epidemics and to find out what questions we should be asking when facing a natural disaster of this kind. At the end of the session, the class will have a good knowledge of these questions, and a knowledge of what literature to read on the history of epidemics.

The lectures will cover the following topics –

  1. Pandemics and History – the lecturer will discuss some of the key themes, and most well-researched episodes from world history (like the Black Death and the Spanish flu) – after a 20 minutes Q and A, the class will discuss 4 papers that will be pre-circulated, especially what is being explained and with what evidence.
  2. Cholera in India: In the same format, the lecturer will present an overview of the field, the class will discuss 4 pre-circulated papers or book chapters, all available online.
  3. Plague in India: Ditto
  4. Smallpox and malaria: The first 100 minutes of the session will discuss the scholarship in the same format as before. In the last 40-45 minutes, the lecturer will collect thoughts on origin, transmission, mitigation based on the previous sessions.
