Pandemic Perspectives seminars
Pandemic Perspectives is an open interdisciplinary community with the aim of integrating the specialisms from a wide range of scholarly fields to interpret and analyse the unique significance of the pandemic in contemporary history.
The series will bring you pioneering voices from across the globe with lectures on diverse topics ranging from the Black Death to the Southeast Asian experience of COVID-19 to the implications of the pandemic for Posthumanist theory.
Talks begin at 6:30pm GMT and will be recorded and posted on our YouTube page.
