"After the Plague" is streaming now on Wondrium –

Expand on—and even challenge—what you’ve learned about the Black Death and the medieval period with After the Plague, a 24-lecture course on the impact of the bubonic plague across the continent. With expert Simon Doubleday, professor of history at Hofstra University, explore the trajectory and after-effects of one of the deadliest pandemics in world history. Learn about the disease’s pathology, symptoms, and origins in East Asia. Map its destructive path as it spread from the Middle East and North Africa into Europe. And investigate the social, political, and economic realities of the plague era, discovering how medieval Europeans from Geoffrey Chaucer to peasant revolutionaries made sense of the crisis and how they responded to it. Using firsthand accounts, world-famous literary texts, new scientific evidence, and cutting-edge historical interpretations, dive into a world that is both like and unlike our own: one defined by tragedy, disease, social revolution, and economic discontent, but also by human fortitude, creativity, and strength.
