“I’m Still Surviving”: Toward a Women’s History of HIV/AIDS

Lecture Description

This talk centers the oral histories of dozens of women living with HIV/AIDS in the contemporary United States. It details how women living with HIV have moved from the margins of what was once a deadly epidemic to becoming survivors, storytellers and history makers. Their stories and histories of survival can inform our sense of US women’s history, the history of racial formation, and the history of health and wellbeing in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
