Living Politics: Remembering HIV/AIDS Activism Tomorrow
12-13 September 2019 @ Refugio, Lenaustraße 3-4, 12047 Berlin, Germany
How are politics and life narratives in the fields of HIV/AIDS activism in Europe entangled?
The conference discusses the meaning, methods and importance of preserving histories of HIV/AIDS, and how these and other ongoing practices relate to current engagements with the epidemic. It brings together social science researchers, policy makers and representatives of NGOs and activist groups from the fields of HIV/AIDS, drug policy, LGBTQ rights, sex work, migration politics and prisons. The conference has been organised by the ‚Disentangling European HIV/AIDS Policies: Activism, Citizenship and Health‘ (EUROPACH) research team, which will present project outputs and concluding arguments about citizenship in Europe in relation to HIV/AIDS. It will celebrate the opening of the exhibition “HIVstories” at the Schwules Museum, and the launch of the European HIV/AIDS Archive, which includes over 100 oral history interviews.
