OSU Foundation Knowledge Breaks: What Can We Learn From the Influenza Pandemic of 1918

May 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on  IGTVFacebook, and Twitter for as we feature a previous OSU Foundation Knowledge Break class!

Theodore Roosevelt said, “The more you know about the past, the more prepared you are for the future.” In this webcast, Director of the OSU Center for the Humanities Christopher McKnight Nichols will teach us about the influenza pandemic of the early 20th Century so that we can better understand society’s current challenges with COVID-19.

In addition to his role at the Center for the Humanities, Nichols is also an associate professor in the College of Liberal Arts, a former Andrew Carnegie Fellow and an Organization of American Historians Distinguished Lecturer. He has written and edited five books, including the forthcoming “Rethinking American Grand Strategy.”

You can register for future classes here.
