Year 8 HASS visit

Last week some of the Year 8 HASS classes were lucky enough to have Joanna Tyler from UWA come out to speak with them. The students have just begun looking at the Black Death and its impacts on Medieval Europe. As part of the Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, the workshop looked at the emotional responses people had to the Black Death in the 14th Century. Students heard from Joanna and undertook a variety of activities working with primary and secondary sources. They saw how experiences of the plague varied for people of different social, religious and economic backgrounds. The topic generated some really interesting discussion. One of the more interesting questions of the day came from the students. How would our society react today if there was an outbreak of the Bubonic Plague and would we have the same level of panic as was experienced in the Middle Ages?
