Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building

Hildegard Diemberger (Social Anthropology, Cambridge University)
in discussion with:
Christos Lynteris (Social Anthropology, Cambridge University)


Hildegard will be discussing the use of historical archives for understanding environmental change in the Himalayas, and Christos will share his comparitive insights on tracing the flow of epidemics through an historical lens. Christos will also discuss how climate change is one of the key threads in plague studies today, not only in studying the ways environmental change impacts epidemic patterns but how plague itself has been shaping the environment over the centuries.

As always there will be time for questions and discussion.
