06-02-2019 12:00:00 06-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Remembering the Dead Over 20,600 New Yorkers died in just two months in the fall of 1918 from influenza. Today, in a city dotted with monuments to war dead or shrines to those lost in terrorist attacks, it is rare to find memorials to those who died from infectious disease or artworks commemorating those living with disease. David Favaloro of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum will lead a conversation with artist and activist Avram Finkelstein and essayist Garnette Cadogan about the experiences of those affected by infectious disease, the role of stigma in social and institutional responses to illness, and who is remembered, forgotten, and commemorated. This event accompanies the exhibition Germ City: Microbes and the Metropolis, presented by the Museum of the City of New York and The New York Academy of Medicine and supported by Wellcome as part of Contagious Cities.  http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349540 The New York Academy of Medicine The New York Academy of Medicine
