The Province of Affliction: Illness and the Making of Early New England

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: Free

The Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum presents The Province of Affliction: Illness and the Making of Early New England with Ben Mutschler in conversation with Robert Gross. Long before Covid, Americans wrestled with the severe disruptions that illness presented in daily life.  This session turns our attention to the social and political implications of sickness in early America, featuring Ben Mutschler in conversation with Robert Gross about Mutschler’s new book, The Province of Affliction: Illness and the Making of Early New England (Chicago, 2020).
