How plagues have made modern society

How does a pandemic change society? Are our beliefs and urban myths shaped by the progress of disease? What does history tell us about death? Let Proquest take you on a tour of plagues past and shed some light on the transformative power of pestilence.

(I should point out that we do not currently have access to the Cecil Papers mentioned in this video, although our history collections cover the broad sweep of everything from 1580 to 1980!)
