Organized by CEMAT & CEMA, and in collaboration with TALIM, the series will examine how various scholars, authors, and disciplines of the humanities explore issues of public health, sickness, and disease.

This special series will run alongside our established lecture series covering archaeology, art history, cultural and social anthropology, documentary film, geography, history, language and linguistics, music, photography, political economy, political science, and sociology.

The online seminar will also be open to students and scholars, as well as the pre-registered public, free of charge. It will be moderated by our peers and colleagues working in the humanities in the U.S. and North Africa.
