The Global Pandemic of 2020-2022: Historical Contexts and Current Perspectives
March 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Center for Humanities and Digital Research at the University of Central Florida is hosting a panel of experts to explore and discuss the Covid 19 pandemic. This global crisis has impacted us like no other event in the last 100 years. The humanities scholars and community experts joining this panel will assess historical parallels, such as the Yellow Fever of 1793 and Spanish flu of 1918, and how this crisis is playing out nationally and in our local communities. Panelists will also discuss and compare the ways medical information has been disseminated within communities during the current and past pandemics.
Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia grant in partnership with the University of Central Florida.
