Presented by: Kyle Harper, Senior Vice President and Provost, University of Oklahoma

4 p.m. Monday, March 30
University Art Museum, Main Gallery, Fine Arts Building
(Reception to follow)

The coronavirus pandemic of 2019-20 has alarmed the global community and reminded us all of the constant risks of new infectious diseases. This lecture will explore what we know about the infectious diseases of the ancient Romans, and how science and history can work together to deepen our understanding of past civilizations and the present and future of human health.

Kyle Harper is a historian of the classical world and the Senior Vice President and Provost at his alma mater, the University of Oklahoma. He graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Letters from OU and then received his Ph.D. in History from Harvard University in 2007. Dr. Harper’s latest book, The Fate of Rome: Climate, Disease, and the End of an Empire, appeared from Princeton University Press in the Fall of 2017. The book argues that climate change and pandemic disease were integral to the fall of the Roman Empire.
