In light of the developing COVID-19 situation, The University of Queensland has taken important steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, alumni, partners and broader community.

UQ has made a decision to cancel all University events unless they are critical to teaching or research. This includes student, academic and public events on and off-campus until the end of June 2020.

Our thoughts are with all of you managing the consequences of the virus during this unprecedented time.

Each pandemic throughout history has brought suffering and civil unrest, but in their wake has come a blossoming of art, literature and new ideas. These upheavals have forced people to rethink the world around them, leading to some of history’s most influential and challenging cultural works. As we look towards our post-COVID-19 society, we are likely to see more than just a recovery of the 2019 world, but something completely new. UQ historians will come together to discuss what has come after plagues throughout ancient, medieval and early modern history and what it may mean for our world today.
