Will putting COVID-19 into historical and cultural context help us understand what we face now? Absolutely.
Dr. Katherine Gaudet, associate director of the University of New Hampshire honors program, will be presenting a Zoom presentation sponsored by the Active Retirement Association at 10 a.m. Sept. 23.
It’s free and open to the public: nonmembers may attend one program per semester at no cost. Register by emailing email@example.com. Please include your name, the ARA program title Plague: History of Epidemics and the community where you reside.
Among her many roles at UNH, Gaudet teaches “Plague: Literary Histories of Epidemics” as an affiliate faculty member in the UNH Humanities Department. She is sure to surprise us with her study of cultural differences in pandemic crises.
