Call for Papers: "Viral"
Parallel discourses of the viral have generated a space where attempts to contain and drive contagions continue to influence and determine relationships between people, animals, technologies and ecologies. In the 1980s and 1990s the virus was seen as a replication machine that forced a questioning of the boundaries of bodies (whether carbon or silicon) and the hybrid borders of identity.
