Biography: 

Annika Mann is a scholar of eighteenth-century and Romantic-era British literature and culture, with particular interests in the history of medicine and print culture. Her book, Reading Contagion: The Hazards of Reading in the Age of Print (University of Virginia Press, 2018), examines how eighteenth-century physicians, philosophers, novelists, and poets depict reading printed texts as materially and affectively contagious, a threat to both individual and collective health. Her co-edited collection, Transforming Contagion: Risky Contacts Among Bodies, Disciplines, and Nations (Rutgers University Press, 2018), explores contagion an interdisciplinary site of both anxiety and possibility, examining not only those contagions postulated to spread from bodies, but also those rooted in political practices, psychological exchanges, social movements, and the classroom. Dr Mann's scholarship has also been published in the journal Eighteenth-Century Fiction and in the edited collection Systems of Life (Fordham University Press, 2018). Her current research explores beliefs about health, motion, and the female body during the Romantic period.
