Event description
This panel brings together academics to present their research on HIV, stigma, and activist/academic strategies of resistance.

About this Event

Addressing topics ranging from HIV criminalisation and mental health, to international HIV/AIDS policies, and the relationship between gender, menopause, and living with HIV, this interdisciplinary panel seeks to foster dialogue about the ongoing epidemic.

The speakers will link the affective life of HIV stigma to its political, personal, and activist life. Doing so, they ask: In what ways is this stigma gendered and raced? How have researchers and activists accounted for the gendered, affective, and political life of HIV? And what does the future of clinical and policy intervention look like?

Speakers:

Dr Aaron Samuel Breslow (Harvard Medical School and Albert Einstein School of Medicine)

Dr Hakan Seckinelgin (Associate Professor (Reader), LSE Department of Social Policy)

Dr Shema Tariq (UCL Institute for Global Health, Postdoctoral Clinical Research Fellow and Honorary Consultant HIV Physician)

Chair: Dr Jacob Breslow (Assistant Professor of Gender and Sexuality, LSE Department of Gender Studies)
