Example text

63 COLLAPSE IV Thacker – Nine Disputations Here the ‘plagues’ do include epidemic disease, but also rivers that turn into blood, swarms of insects, tempestual storms, and an eclipse. Another, more common reference among the Black Death chronicles is apocalyptic. 16 In all these instances we see this key element: a divine sovereign who, in the form of a judgment and/or punishment, sends down – or better, emanates – a form of miasmatic life that is indissociable from decay, decomposition, and death.

That some disasters are ‘natural’ while others are not implies a hypothetical line between the disaster that can be prevented (and thus controlled), and the disaster that cannot. The case of infectious diseases is similar, except that the agency or the activity of this ‘biological disaster’ courses through human beings themselves – within bodies, between bodies, and through the networks of global transit and exchange that form bodies politic. , the two-fold conceptual apparatus of ‘emerging infectious diseases’ (naturally-caused) and ‘biodefense’ (artificiallycaused) cloaks a generalized militarization of public health.

5. The Spirit of Biology The relationship between theology and horror in the West invites a number of superficial comparisons: in the Eucharist there is both cannibalism and vampirism; in the Jewish and Christian apocalyptic traditions the realization of the City of God always entails resurrection of the dead; and in numerous instances the New Testament portrays the various demons and demonic possessions that elicit the healing powers of the Messiah. Indeed, considering the extent to which genre horror deals with the themes of death, resurrection, and the divine and demonic, one could argue that genre horror is a secular, cultural expression of theological concerns.
