The Maltese Experience of the 1918/19 Influenza Pandemic

Dr Mario Saliba will be delivering a lecture via Facebook Live on June 24 at 11am, the second virtual lecture being organised by the Bank. This will be live on its Central Bank of Malta – Events page.

The influenza pandemic of 1918/19 – known as the Spanish Flu – killed more people than the First World War. This talk on the Maltese experience is based on research done by Prof. Larry Sawchuk (Department of Anthropology, University of Toronto, Scarborough), Dr Lianne Tripp (Department of Anthropology, University of British Columbia, Canada) and Dr Mario Saliba, which was published in their paper entitled Deconstructing the 1918-19 Influenza Pandemic in the Maltese Islands.
