Contagion project leads Hannah Marcus and Allan Brandt (Department of the History of Science, Harvard University) invite researchers to contribute commentaries for inclusion in this initiative. 

Commentaries should focus on a Harvard Library collection item. Please consult the Harvard Library CURIOSity site Contagion: Historical Views of Diseases and Epidemics for inspiration and access to digitized material; HOLLIS Images to search digitized visual material; and HOLLIS for Archival Discovery to search archival collections. Search all materials with Harvard Library's catalog, HOLLIS.

Before getting started, prospective authors should contact Hannah Marcus to indicate their interest and propose a collection item to examine. Please do not submit commentaries directly to Harvard Library Bulletin.
