ANNA-MARIA KELLEN LECTURE
The lecture will be held Tuesday, 20 October at 7:30pm, here at the American Academy, 17-19 Am Sandwerder, 14109 Berlin. (Very accessible from the center of town via the #1 S-Bahn, stop: Wannsee.)
Historian Monica Green’s lecture “A Global History of Health" addresses the need for a narrative of global health that encompasses every continent, across time, and includes all major infectious diseases. This means, as well, the inclusion of histories of pathogens and the human actions that played a role in human exposure to disease. As she reframes the public discussion of epidemic and pandemic, Green’s work is relevant to biomedical researchers, molecular biologists, population geneticists, and policymakers.
