This is a reminder that Excursions, the interdisciplinary journal at the University of Sussex seeks papers on the notion of the virus and the viral for a forthcoming issue.
The logic of the virus has become endemic. Viral ads mirror contagion to convey their message. Computers and systems are struck down by infections. Pigs and birds are transformed into sinister hosts. Terrorists form cells and virulent covert networks, globalisation becomes a creeping homogenisation attacking the idiosyncratic, and media rapidly evolve to overcome any censorial attempt at information immunisation.
