Narratives of Living with HIV/AIDS
How do we learn about the global experience of people living with HIV/AIDS? Read biographies, narratives, poetry, and blogs written by HIV persons, their families, friends, doctors, and caregivers. Listen to stories told in film documentaries and on the internet. Study interdisciplinary theories of identity and sexuality, illness narratives, narrative medicine, and doctor-patient communication. Reflect on the different meanings of the AIDS experience for men and women, young and old, in Brazil, Botswana, China, Haiti, Russia, South Africa, and rural and urban USA. Apply this new framework to investigate and analyze HIV/AIDS programs. Prior global health coursework recommended.
