Description

History Behind the Headlines
What the past can teach us about where the world might go next

The Covid-19 pandemic has upended how we work, learn, and live. How have societies coped with great crises before? How have they changed afterward? We invite our students and their households and families to join UW History faculty for a roundtable on how the past can inform our present and future. 

Speakers:
James Gregory on the Great Depression and Great Recession
Laurie Marhoefer on the AIDS Crisis
Adam Warren on pandemics and global health
Glennys Young on Russia and Europe in crisis and recovery
Margaret O'Mara as host and moderator

This event is free and open to the public. You will receive the link to the Zoom livestream upon registration.
