Kathryn Olivarius (Stanford University) will speak with David Jones (Harvard University) about:
Herd Immunity and The Dangerous History of Immunoprivilege
During the nineteenth century, yellow fever killed upwards of eight percent of New Orleans' population each summer. This disease was terrifying: there was no cure, no inoculation, no conclusive evidence of disease transmission, and no satisfactory proof for why it killed some while leaving others symptomatic. It was, moreover, a sudden and horrible way to die, with victims famously regurgitating thick black vomit at the end of their illness. Half of all victims died; the other half became "acclimated" or immune for life. The Cotton Kingdom was a slave society where whites dominated free people of color and enslaved people through legally sanctioned violence. But another invisible hierarchy of immunocapital came to co-mingle with the racial order; white “acclimated citizens” stood atop the social pyramid, followed by white “unacclimated strangers,” followed by everyone else. Here, the acclimated wielded their immunity at every turn, making epidemiological discrimination a major form of bias in this already unequal society. Kathryn Olivarius will present this historical case study, and David Jones will comment and discuss the history of herd immunity and its current implications.
