Salmonella Infections, Networks of Knowledge, and Public Health in Britain, 1880-1975

This chapter looks at the way in which an influential scientific network became established and operated within the world of Salmonella science in the inter-war period. Publications, correspondence, visiting, and conferences played a part in this construction and helped to forge bonds of personal friendship between members of the network, but in this case allegiance to serology as the basis for the classification of the Salmonella was the crucial bond for scientific sympathy and acceptance into the network. This chapter shows how such a network can at once contribute to knowledge but also privilege particular understandings of that knowledge, and how changing understandings in the wider scientific community can operate to destroy an established scientific hegemony.

Keywords:   Salmonella, network, serology, knowledge, friendship, hegemony
