The GLBT Historical Society is cosponsoring a two-day interdisciplinary symposium organized by the University of California, San Francisco that focuses on documenting the history of HIV/AIDS. The enormity and complexity of the stories and perspectives on the disease, which has affected so many millions of patients and families around the world, present significant challenges that demand continual reexamination.
By examining and reflecting on our knowledge of the history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and its future, the symposium aims to improve our understanding of the true effects of the disease and what it can teach us about future epidemics. The program consists of an afternoon session and evening reception on October 4, followed by a full day of presentations on October 5. The complete program of events is available here. Tickets are available online here.
