Recorded: Friday, February 24, 7 pm in the Weston Family Learning Centre
In the 1300s plague ravaged
Europe and was called the Black Death. The horrors of this pervaded all aspects
of medieval culture and especially art. What are today’s plagues and how do we
cope with them physically, psychologically and spiritually?
Allan Peterkin will explore the topic of contemporary plagues, arts and medicine in conversation with Kate Rossiter and Robert Houle. Dr. Rossiter is Assistant Professor in Health Studies at the Brantford campus of Wilfrid Laurier University. Robert Houle is a Saulteaux First Nations artist, curator, critic and educator.
Presented in partnership with the Wilson Center, the Arts, Health and Humanities Program and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto.
