1919 influenza pandemic to be considered in Sydney symposium, 16 February

The 1919 influenza pandemic had effects at least as profound as the Great War that preceded it. The City of Sydney and the Royal Australian Historical Society are running a symposium ‘Flu frenzy: Taming the 1919 Influenza Pandemic’ on Saturday, 16 February, to mark the centenary of the pandemic.

Details are here, with a link to booking arrangements and further details. Speakers include Laila Elmoos, Peter Hobbins, Chrys Meader, and Lisa Murray. Cost is $10 or $15.
