WELCOME TRANSFER & EXCHANGE STUDENTS! Welcome to Washington University!

The Global AIDS Epidemic: Inequalities, Gender, and Interventions Dr. Shanti Parikh, Department of Anthropology Seigle Hall, L002 Professor Parikh (Anthropology) discusses the global HIV epidemic from the early days when it was initially identified in gay men in the U.S. to 30 years later when it has become a disease of the poor, marginalized and disenfranchised. She uses critical medical anthropology to examine how the spread and medical treatment of history’s most virulent epidemic is less about the lack of education and odd (sexual) behavior than it is about poverty, marginalization, lack of access to healthcare, and social and economic inequalities. Using case studies from around the world, she takes students on a tour of how the epidemic and the lives of those affected are shaped by their conditions—from drug & sex trafficking networks in Asia’s Golden Triangle to the Prison Industrial Complex in the U.S., and from labor-migration to diamond mines in Southern Africa to the risk faced by men who have sex with men (MSM) in secret as they attempt to avoid public shame. She ends with love letters exchanged by youth in Uganda as a window into understanding how future adults imagine romance and risk in a time of AIDS.
