Bird, professor of history, will discuss the different ways people experienced and dealt with illness in the antebellum South through the research of Marli Weiner for her book “Defining the Body: Race, Sex and Place in the Antebellum South,” which is the first of a series on “‘I Was a Great Deal Alarmed’: Women Experiencing Illness and Caring for the Sick in the Mid-Nineteenth Century South.” The first book is being considered for publication at the University of Illinois Press.
