Section Information for Spring 2023
The advent of the pandemic caused by covid-19 transformed American society in 2020, affecting everything from work to school to leisure activities to the economy and politics. Yet pandemics have recurred frequently throughout American history. In this course, we will explore both the epidemiology of pandemic diseases and how American men and women in the past reacted to these outbreaks. In addition to the current coronavirus pandemic, episodes to be examined include smallpox outbreaks that occurred during the American Revolution, yellow fever in 1793, cholera in the 1820s and 1830s, the Spanish influenza of 1918, polio in the 1950s, HIV/AIDs during the 1980s, and others. A few short papers, blog posts, and a longer research project and oral presentation will be required.
