Richard C. Keller, Professor, Department of Medical History and Biotethics, University of Wisconsin  give a talk on Viral Markets: Economics, the Environment, and Emerging Disease in the 20th Century.  Environmental threats to human health have changed dramatically in the course of the past century.  The cases of bubonic plague, HIV/AIDS, and Lyme disease in particular help to illustrate the ways in which changes in human patterns of interaction with the environment–and specifically, the ways in which consumer markets have disrupted unstable ecologies–have opened new epidemiological pathways and presented new challenges to health and medicine in the United States and the wider world.
