The Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library is pleased to announce the latest episode in our series "Learning from Premodern Plagues," a new series of videos exploring peoples' experiences of plagues from the sixth through the eighteenth century. Each short (3-5 minutes) video focuses on one object that tells the story of a particular moment in plague history, and are ideal for the classroom. Many of the books and manuscripts presented here form part of the Newberry Library’s collections.
The Folger Institute is launching a new series for the 2020-2021 academic year devoted to "Critical Race Conversations," a Folger Institute Fiftieth Anniversary Project supported by the Mellon Initiative in Collaborative Research. A full description may be found here: https://www.folger.edu/critical-race-conversations. Events will be added as they are confirmed.
