In a sign of the times, fellow members of the Society assembled online today to hear and participate in a seminar discussion. Dr. Declan Downey provided the historical perspective on how plagues were catalysts for major socio-economic, cultural and political changes. This was then followed by our Society President, Guy Johnston, speaking about the contemporary situation and on what might be expected of the pandemic Covid-19’s impact in socio-economic terms.

The format of this event was well received by all participants so that we'll be looking to organise further similar talks online. At least until it is safe for us all to again meet in person.
