Irene Romano Compares Pandemics: Current and Ancient

On June 5, 2020, at 9:30 a.m., School of Anthropology Professor Irene Bald Romano delivered an online lecture presented by the Arizona State Museum titled “The Lives of Two Ancient Pandemics and Their Modern Resonance.” The topic is one that was visited by other members of the SoA faculty during Spring semester. See this submission from 5/22/2020 by an anonymous graduate student and, more recently, this one from 6/5/2020 by undergrad Brittany Wright.
