This week we will be reading:
David Arnold, 'Diabetes in the Tropics: Race, Place and Class in India, 1880-1965', Social History of Medicine Vol.22, (No.2, 2009?), pp.245-261.
– AVAILABLE ONLINE

With a particular focus on the relationship between ‘disease[s]’ and ‘identity[ies]’, although everyone should feel free to offer any other thoughts arising from the texts.
Look forward to seeing you there.
