Chancellor’s Day: Microbes and the Metropolis
In this interdisciplinary day, discover the science, history, and art of germs as you explore New York’s long battle against infectious disease in this interactive day filled with tours, workshops on project-based learning, and an introduction to NYC History Day.
Explore the groundbreaking exhibition Germ City: Microbes and the Metropolis and hear from curator Dr. Rebecca Jacobs, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow. From cholera and tuberculosis to influenza and HIV, use primary sources to uncover the complex story of New York’s long battle against infectious disease—a fight involving government, urban planners, medical professionals, businesses, and activists—and discuss its implications today while learning how our understanding of disease has changed us physically, socially, and culturally.
