“Before COVID: Illness in Everyday Life in Early New England” Public Program
This unique presentation will place Ben Mutschler, author of The Province of Affliction: Illness and the Making of Early New England, in conversation with AAS Curator of Manuscripts Ashley Cataldo about his new book and the AAS collections most relevant to researching it. The Province of Affliction explores the ways in which the routine presence of illness in daily life shaped and strained the most basic social and political institutions of eighteenth-century New England, from families and households to neighborhoods and towns, all the way to the highest reaches of government. The presentation will highlight how diaries, pension records, and other manuscripts allowed Mutschler to trace those pressures throughout early New England.
