Pandemic Disease in the Medieval World: Rethinking the Black Death

According to a press release from the University of Illinois’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences:

Some issues require scholars in both the humanities and sciences to fully understand. As a new journal sponsored by the Program in Medieval Studies reveals, the Black Death is one of those topics. “Pandemic Disease in the Medieval World: Rethinking the Black Death” is the subject of a new journal, The Medieval Globe, created in hopes of fostering collaborative, interdisciplinary research into the period of history from about 500 to 1500 AD. Executive Editor Carol Symes, a professor of history and medieval studies at Illinois, says there could not be a better illustration of this endeavor than the journal’s examination of the bubonic plague.
