The 1918 to 1920 influenza pandemic infected more than 500 million people, and resulted in the deaths of three to five per cent of the world’s population. 100 years later, non-fiction writers and global health specialists discuss how pandemics through time have reshaped our societies, and explore the stories behind scientific and social data. Catharine Arnold is a journalist, academic, and historian. Her works include Pandemic 1918: The Story of the Deadliest Influenza in History. Seema Yasmin is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, author and medical doctor. Her first book charts the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and the life of a scientist who fought to end the outbreak. She teaches science journalism and global health storytelling at Stanford University. They are joined by LSE academics Clare Wenham, Assistant Professor of Global Health Policy, and Stephen Roberts, Fellow in Global Health.
