In WRI 163: Contagion, class readings have become reality

From The Daily Princetonian: Professor Carolyn Ureña ’08 always knew that the interdisciplinary study of infectious disease was important. Now, the rest of the world is catching on. Ureña began her first-year writing seminar, WRI 163/164: Contagion, in fall 2017. The goal of the course has always been to explore the “cultural and biological meanings of infectious diseases.” Yet this semester, the course material became relevant in a way no one could have expected.
