PODCASTING PANDEMICS: From the Black Death to Covid-19
HIST 498 sec. 09
This course examines the complex role infectious disease has played in human history by studying key moments in which people and pathogens have collided. We'll investigate how the world's most fearsome epidemics--the Black Death, Smallpox, Malaria, Yellow Fever, Cholera, Flu, Polio, HIV, Ebola, and of course Covid--shook economies, altered the course of wars, fueled some imperial dreams while dashing others, transformed social relations, seized politics and culture, and of course irrevocably changed medicine and its role in societies.
