Attend a webinar followed by a Q&A session on the cultural history of the mask in the context of a pandemic, hosted by the Indiana University Bloomington Center of Excellence with support from IU Europe Gateway.

When the surgical mask appeared in our daily lives in the spring of 2020, it became the object of much attention. l’Observatoire des patrimoines de l’Alliance Sorbonne Université (OPUS) then launched a series of actions and events highlighting masks in all their diversity.

Lecture will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with in-person and Zoom participants. The event is made possible by IU Europe Gateway and the Center of Excellence of the French Embassy at IU.
