Pandemic Perspectives, sponsored by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History
The National Museum of American History is offering a series of webinars titled “Pandemic Perspectives.” The sessions will use material culture to look at a variety of different pandemic-related topics. Some will be fun (“Looking Good on that Zoom Call” looks at our historic cosmetics collection) while some are much more serious (“Racing for a Vaccine” examines the Museum’s historic vaccine collection). This series should be of interest to historians of science who are thinking about material culture.
