Meet a Huskie: Valerie Garver--How Epidemics Have Shaped History
Thursday, Aug. 27
Just as COVID-19 has transformed our world, pandemics also changed the lives of many during the Middle Ages.
NIU History Professor Valerie Garver, Ph.D, will discuss how medieval people responded to the Justinianic Plague (6th century) and the Black Death (14th century) and offer some comparisons to more recent experiences of epidemic disease.
