The social and cultural impact of Foot and Mouth Disease in the UK in 2001

Experiences and analyses

Martin Döring and Brigitte Nerlich

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A fascinating collection of chapters from scientists in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences, plus essays from a variety of stakeholders, artists, poets and people directly involved in FMD, including children Offers multidisciplinary perspectives on the cultural and social consequences of the 2001 outbreak of foot and mouth disease in the UK, which go beyond dominant economic and scientific ideas and framings used to study FMD Gives a voice to both 'experts' and 'lay' people and therefore contributes to a broader type of sense-making in times of epidemics, disease, and disasters
