Pandemics in Historical Perspective: An Online Panel Discussion

Monday, October 26, 2020

Beyond its human toll, COVID has brought economic chaos, social change and huge burdens on everyday life. And yet we’ve been here before. From cholera to Spanish flu to coronavirus, global pandemics are the great forgotten sagas of history, reshaping society in their deadly wake. Join us for an online panel focusing on historical perspectives; the challenges of the current crisis; and building stronger, more resilient communities as we learn from these difficult times. Panelists include Dr. Matthew Smith, Michael J. Colligan History Project (moderator); Dr. Susan Spellman, Miami University Regionals; Dr. Jim Harris, The Ohio State University; Ian MacKenzie-Thurley, executive director, Fitton Center for Creative Arts; Joshua Smith, city manager, City of Hamilton and Kathy Creighton, executive director, Butler County Historical Society. Presented by The Michael J. Colligan History Project and The Menard Family Center for Democracy. RSVP:
