“HIV/AIDS and Global Health: From the Global History of HIV/AIDS to Its Lived Experience in North Carolina.”
The papers of medical anthropologist Maria de Bruyn, a recent acquisition by the History of Medicine Collections in the Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, will be the focus of several events this fall. Duke Global Health Institute Professor Kearsley Stewart is collaborating with the History of Medicine Collections on an interactive three-week assignment for undergraduate students in Stewart’s fall seminar on HIV/AIDS.
In addition, the Franklin Humanities Institute will promote their new Health Humanities Lab with a special World AIDS Day event featuring a keynote address by Maria de Bruyn and a lecture by poet and write Kelley Swain. Students in professor Kearsley Stewart’s Duke Global Health Institute seminar on HIV/AIDS will discuss their three-week workshop with Swain and present an exhibit of their work based on materials from the Maria de Bruyn collection.
The event is free and open to the public. A reception will begin at 5:00 p.m.
