Belfast, Maine — Registration is open through the University of Maine Hutchinson Center for over 300 undergraduate and graduate courses offered in fall 2020. All will be offered remotely.

The offerings include a new course, History of Pandemics in America (HTY 199), taught by lecturer and UMaine alumnus Patrick Callaway, Ph.D.. The course examines the role of epidemic disease in American history, using case studies to explore the personal and collective understandings of disease, responses to epidemics, the influences of race and class on the lived experience during epidemics, and the political, social and economic consequences of public health crisis.
