Throughout 2019 IWM London will be holding meet the author sessions.
Author Stefanos Geroulanos will be signing copies at IWM London of The Human Body in the Age of Catastrophe.
The injuries suffered by soldiers during the First World War were as varied as they were brutal. How could the human body suffer and often absorb such disparate traumas? Why might the same wound lead one soldier to die but allow another to recover? Moving effortlessly between the history of medicine and intellectual history, The Human Body in the Age of Catastrophe is an intriguing look into the conceptual underpinnings of the world the Great War ushered in.
