Living to Grow Up: How Childhood Death Became “Unnatural”

The talk will look at the decline in childhood death over the last century and a half, looking at medical, social, literary aspects of this remarkable shift, at how parenthood and pediatrics have changed, at the troubling persistent inequities and dilemmas, and at what this history suggests to us about our current situation.

This lecture will be held in person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
