Blast from the Past

Sunday, May 2 at 4 p.m. AST

Before we discovered viruses, there were vapors. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to experience a pandemic from the past, this is the webinar for you! In Blast from the Past, Dr. Simon Kow, director of the Early Modern Studies Program at King’s, and Hilary Ilkay, tutor in the Foundation Year Program, will lead you through pandemics in Ancient Greece and 17th-century London and explore the superstition they spread. This event will take place at 4 p.m. AST on May 2, 2021. Come online with us and enjoy this Blast from the Past!
