Abstract: Historically, one of the greatest threats to humanity has come from tiniest of creatures – disease causing microorganisms. Epidemics of infectious diseases have not only caused human morbidity and mortality on a horrific scale but have also profoundly shaped commerce, culture, and politics. Pathogens, both as triggers of long-standing infectious diseases including TB, and ‘new’ diseases, such as Zika, Ebola, H1N1, SARS and also increasingly as potential weapons of bioterrorism continue today to pose a grave global risk. One of the reasons why infectious diseases generate global panic is that they do -not respect social and political boundaries. Yet historically certain societies and polities have been far more effective at countering the equivalently severe challenges posed by particular diseases. Why? I seek to answer this question through an examination of the differential effectiveness of the control of smallpox through a subnational comparison of Madras presidency and Canton in the nineteenth century and a national comparison of India and China in the twentieth centuries. Smallpox is one of the oldest and deadliest diseases to afflict mankind; it is also the only disease to have been successfully eradicated. India and China, were known in the colonial imagination as “the cradles of smallpox”. Madras and Canton shared similar histories of recurring severe epidemics. In part because of the length and intensity of their experience with the disease, both regions also had rich repertoires of ritual practices, etiologies, cultural norms and techniques of treatment. In both provinces the British East India Company introduced the recently “discovered” Jennerian vaccine in the early 1800s. Yet why did vaccination spread much more rapidly in Canton than in Madras? In terms of a national level comparison, in the 1950s, China and India were characterized by similar rates of smallpox incidence and similarly complex disease environments. Both countries were also emerging from a tumultuous period of conflict and faced equally severe challenges of state consolidation and state building, including widespread poverty, low levels of industrialization and infrastructure including health infrastructure. Yet from these roughly equivalent starting points, China had managed to effectively eradicate smallpox by the early 1950s while India was one of the last countries in the world to eradicate smallpox in 1975. Why was this the case? This talk draws on a range of sources to make a case for the importance of attention to local cultural practices around disease and healing, and the role of affective mobilization for the success of public health outcomes.Prerna Singh is Mahatma Gandhi Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Studies and faculty fellow at the Watson Institute, and co-convenor of the Brown-Harvard-MIT Joint Seminar in South Asian Politics. She completed her PhD and MA from the Department of Politics at Princeton University, the tripos in social and political studies from Cambridge University, UK, and a BA (Honors) in economics from Delhi University. Prior to joining Brown, she taught in the Department of Government at Harvard University. She has also been a junior fellow at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies and held a pre-doctoral research fellowship at the Center for Advanced Study for India (CASI) at the University of Pennsylvania. Her book, How Solidarity Works for Welfare: Subnationalism and Social Development in India, is forthcoming with Cambridge University Press. Her articles have been published in several journals, including Comparative Political Studies,Comparative Politics, World Development, World Politics, and Studies in Comparative International Development. Singh is also the co-editor of the Handbook of Indian Politics (Routledge 2013).

Wow, wow, wow.
Wow, Naresh — more than 800,000 people have chipped in to support this campaign. I think that’s just incredible. I know it doesn’t fit with the media narrative, but we’re building quite a movement here, and we’ve already brought home our first two wins.
With just eight days left until Super Tuesday, I need this whole team to pull together and fight as hard as you can, just as we did in Nevada. If you’re with me, chip in $1 to the Super Tuesday Fund right now, and let’s start March with our biggest wins yet:
