If you have a question about this talk, please contact Richard Staley.

In this meeting Warwick Anderson leads an informal discussion of his recent book Intolerant Bodies: A Short History of Autoimmunity , co-authored with Ian R. Mackay. Anderson is particularly interested in two issues, how to collaborate with a scientist in writing historical narratives, and the meaning of biological individuality (especially self-tolerance) in the 20th century. For a discussion of the latter, see his feuilleton on tolerance. Hopkins offers a 30% discount on the book with the code HNAF (we’ve been told to spread the word). Participants should have read the book; chapters are excerpted in Isis 105 (2014) and Journal of the History of Biology 47 (2014).

This talk is part of the Twentieth Century Think Tank series.
