AHF is offering weekly links – to materials from literature, history and poetry – for comfort and perspective during the Covid-19 experience.
The study of history has taken on new relevance in this time of fear, loss and uncertainty. Historic events enter and exit our collective conscious depending on current events. Consider, for example, the 1918 flu pandemic, which caused 50 million deaths worldwide. To aid our perspective, AHF asked historian Jeffrey Bibbee to offer “Epidemic: Exploring the Spanish Influenza Epidemic of 1918-1919,” an online lecture.
In times of grief, loss and anxiety, what brings you solace?
AHF can offer these resources thanks to the good work of our many colleagues and partners in the humanities.
