Alt-White Supremacy as Public Health Emergency – DAHSM Culpeper Seminar Series

May 1 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
UCSF Laurel Heights Campus, 3333 California St., Room 474

Furthermore, in 2017, we ask: how are the humanities transforming health, and how is health transforming the humanities? And what do these mutual influences suggest concerning the health of the humanities?
