Catastrophes & Human History

Summer Session 2019: June 3-June 27

Description

A historical exploration of the ways in which societies around the world have responded to major catastrophes, both natural and man-made, such as plagues, famines, wars, and genocides. What does the response tell us about the social structure, politics, science and technology, and culture of the affected society? What are the long term impacts? How are these catastrophes remembered?
