Visual Representations of the Third Plague Pandemic

The ERC-funded 5-year project “Visual Representations of the Third Plague Pandemic” will examine the visual representation of plague outbreaks in China at the time of the third plague pandemic (1855-1959).

The project focuses in particular on the Hong Kong bubonic plague outbreak of 1894 and the pneumonic plague outbreaks in Manchuria in 1910-11 and 1920-21. Other plague epidemics in East Asia such as in Taiwan (1899), Newchwang/ Yingkou (1899), Kobe and Osaka (1899) and Tungliao (1928) will also be examined.
