Legacy Symposium: Mosquitopia? The Place of Pests in a Healthy World

October 2019

This three-day symposium brought together scientists and humanists to assess how mosquitoes can better coexist with people. Our strategy was to identify major categories of mosquito-human relationships, and enrich them from multiple perspectives, especially history, anthropology, and ethics as well as entomology, molecular biology, and health sciences.
