As coronavirus (COVID-19) commands attention worldwide, CSSH turns to its archives to gain insight. Here we have collected decades of excellent scholarship on disease and epidemics.
Since its inception, CSSH has published groundbreaking essays on slavery, enslaved persons, and (forced) labor across different time periods and geographic locations. Inspired by The New York Times’s “The 1619 Project,” we’ve put together a selection of these essays going back almost sixty years.
