VIRTUAL - Epidemics and Syndemics – a webinar with Dr. Fabian Crespo

October 27, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

This is an online event.

AIA Society: Kentucky

Kicking off our 2020-21 series of archaeology webinars with a very timely subject, Dr. Fabian Crespo will offer an anthropological perspective on medieval and modern disease outbreaks in a presentation titled “Epidemics and Syndemics: From Leprosy (Hansen’s disease) in Medieval Europe to COVID-19 Pandemic.” In this webinar, focused on leprosy in medieval Europe and COVID-19, Dr. Crespo will discuss how epidemics and pandemics have multiple dimensions, and the synergistic interaction of those dimensions (“syndemics”), in time and space, will help us to reveal how historical and biosocial processes ultimately affect our immune competence and mortality burdens. The webinar is free but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Visit to register.
