On Friday 18 June 2021 (16.00 CET), Dr. Janna Coomans (University of Amsterdam) will present on ‘Pigs and Plague: Public Health and Community in the Late Medieval Low Countries’.

Her project within this larger ERC team explores the practices of various agents to promote communal wellbeing in the late medieval urban Low Countries.
