On this episode of WBOI Presents: In Session, we are joined by David Schuster, Associate Professor of History at Purdue University Fort Wayne. Our conversation focused on social anxiety and where we see historical parallels with issues we face in 2020. How was anxiety diagnosed one hundred years ago? What were some of the contributing factors? We’ll look past the who, when, and what, to focus on how people were feeling on this episode of WBOI Presents: In Session.
