On Wednesday, March 31 at 1:00 p.m., the Institute for Classic and Medieval Studies (ICMS) will launch the first of two Lifelong Learners courses for the spring 2020 semester. Meeting weekly for six weeks via Zoom, The Plague in Medieval Literature will examine representations of the Black Death in literature of the time. Johanna Fisher, professor of English, will lead discussions on the experience of the plague and the various ways people responded to it. Authors studied include Petrarch, Boccaccio, Chaucer and Langland.
