In this interactive discussion, Steere-Williams will offer a cross-disciplinary perspective on some of the major global pandemics that took place throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Using primary source evidence from historical archives, he will illustrate the troubling parallels between past crises and the current health crisis today; including the pitting of public health against economic, science against governmental policy, and the “us” against “them” attitude of xenophobia and nationalism that pervades global disease outbreaks.
