I am interested in how Western public health organizations respond to moments of environmental health risks. Intersecting concerns about biosecurity, race, disability, and gender, I see the question of Zika Virus as not just epidemiological, but deeply political. By looking at resources published in response to Zika Virus, this thesis will investigate the question: how does Western biomedical knowledge function through national and international public health organizations to measure and manage abnormality?
