Public Health and Pandemics in the Atlantic World

Presented by Jacob Steere-Williams.

This presentation places in historical context the long history of how pandemics and epidemics of infectious disease have shaped the American history and the history of the Atlantic World. We will highlight the role of transatlantic slavery, the establishment of the plantation economy, and the last social and political impacts of disease on our world today.
