Pandemic Re-Awakenings

The Forgotten and Unforgotten 'Spanish' Flu of 1918-1919

Edited by Guy Beiner

  • Offers a multi-level and multi-faceted exploration of a century of remembering, forgetting, and rediscovering the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919
  • Explores the hitherto unexplored vicissitudes of memory in the interrelated spheres of personal, communal, medical, and cultural histories in different national and transnational settings across the globe
  • Reveals how, even though the Great Flu was overshadowed by the commemorative culture of the Great War, recollections of the pandemic persisted over time to re-emerge towards the centenary of the 'Spanish' Flu and burst into public consciousness following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Draws together scholarship from twenty-three researchers from across the world
