By Nicholas Ng-A-Fook

In this second episode, Dr. Nicholas Ng-A-Fook interviews Dr. Lindsay Gibson, an Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia. Prior to his work in higher education, he taught secondary school history and social studies within the Kelowna public schooling system for twelve years.

During their conversation, Lindsay shares his perspectives on what we might learn from the discipline of history education in relation to the 1918-1919 Influenza Pandemic and COVID-19. He addresses some of the following concepts: trauma, equity, historical thinking, historical consciousness, virtual reality, construction of historical representations, teaching ethical judgement, historical harms, and Twitter curation.
