Epidemie nella storia: documenti digitalizzati dalle collezioni dell’Università di Harvard


Una collezionie digitale di documenti conservati presso le biblioteche dell’Università di Harvard consente di accedere a fonti storiche che documentano le implicazioni socio-politiche e culturali di alcuni dei più rilevanti fenomeni epidemici che hanno colpito la popolazione europea ed extraeuropea nei secoli scorsi.

Contagion: Historical Views of Diseases and Epidemics is a digital library collection that brings a unique set of resources from Harvard’s libraries to Internet users everywhere. Offering valuable insights to students of the history of medicine and to researchers seeking an historical context for current epidemiology, the collection contributes to the understanding of the global, social–history, and public–policy implications of disease.
