LMCC meetings typically take place on the last Wednesday of every month in the HHIVE Lab (Greenlaw 524); however, the first meeting of the term will take place on Thursday, September 1. If you cannot join LMCC in person, you are welcome to join via Zoom: https://unc.zoom.us/j/99228197675.
For August, LMCC will discuss Abigail A. Dumes’s 2020 monograph Divided Bodies: Lyme Disease, Contested Illness, and Evidence-Based Medicine from Duke University Press. Specifically, we plan to discuss the introduction, “Lyme Disease Outside In” (pp. 1-25).
The full text of the book is available online through the UNC Libraries here. We’ve also posted .pdfs of the book’s front matter (including the TOC) and introduction on the “Readings” page of the LMCC website. If you run into trouble getting access to the text, please let us know.
Readings and other relevant details will be announced via LMCC’s Announcements page.
