You may recall that last year, Professor Sealy Gilles (English Department) presented a lecture ("Plagues and Poxes: Epidemic Disease in Medieval and Early Modern London") at the New York Public Library (NYPL).
We are excited to announce that Professor Gilles will once again be speaking at NYPL, this time on the topic of leprosy, or Hansen's disease. This is a second installment of work from her sabbatical project.
