HIV/AIDS Knowledge and SocietyChair: Roland Chesters, writer and disability development consultant
How would you feel if you were told that you had two weeks to live? That was the life-changing prognosis given to Roland Chesters. In this session, he will help us to understand the complex landscape of AIDS politics and how violence is embedded within the social discourse of AIDS. The key reading material will be Chesters’ book Ripples from the Edge of Life and the introductory chapter of AIDS and the Body Politics by Catherine Waldby.
