Invasion, Infection, Invisibility: An Iconology of Illegalized Immigration Francesca Falk What is perceived as familiar or unfamiliar, as being part of the communi- ty or not, is very often the result of mental and material images: Commu- nities are imagined and thus constituted among others by certain kinds of visualizations. Figure 1 FRANCESCA FALK84 “A carabiniere with a mask, seen today in the harbour of Brindisi at the arrival of a fi shing cutter fi lled with illegal immigrants from Albania”1, says the caption of a photograph from Associated Press.

interplay of humans, mosquitoes, and parasites Looking at the Plasmodium cycle helps to explain some of the peculiarities of a malaria infection. For instance, the bursting of the red blood cells is what caus- es the symptomatic fever attacks typically associated with a malaria. Because it takes some days for the Merozoites to mature into Trophozoites and eventual- ly break up into Schizonts, the fever attacks come intermittently, in intervals of 48 hours, or in the case of a P. malariae infection, after 72 hours. These repeat- ed bouts of temperature increase have

patients within a given ten-year age-span. Before discussing the local conceptualization of malarial symptoms I will first look into the biomedical analysis of the symptomatic aspects of malaria. Under- standing the biomedical view of the bodily processes that occur with a malaria infection explains the complications and lethality of the disease, and is ultimately linked to the local conceptualizations of malaria. In the following paragraphs I will therefore brief ly outline the onset of an infection with P. falciparum and the associated symptoms as understood in

network could be trained to correlate patient preoperational factors to the percentage of risk of death due to surgery” (ibid: 65), its “accuracy in predicting deaths” was “virtually identical to [that of] the other models” yet “several percent more accurate at predicting patients that will survive surgery” (ibid: 64). And “since the biggest problem after an operation is infection, it may be that the neural network in the majority of the cases is identifying infection” (ibid: 65). In another setting, Schmidhuber (2015: 103) found that “humans learn to actively
