The virtual series entitled “Pandemics in the Past: From Prehistory to (Almost) the Present” features guest scholars from across the U.S and Europe and is coordinated by John Haldon, Shelby Cullom Davis ’30 Professor of European History, Emeritus, and the Director of the Program in Medieval Studies Helmut Reimitz.

The series will be introduced on Thursday May, 14, 2020, by John Haldon. Interested parties must register for each seminar to receive the Zoom meeting link.
