Research output: Other contribution


The ‘Reactions to HIV/AIDS since the 1980s: Transnational and comparative history perspectives’ conference, which took place at the University of St Andrews on 30-31 August 2022, aimed to consolidate the growing interdisciplinary research on transnational and socio-cultural histories of responses to HIV/AIDS. The conference paid particular attention to cross-border transfers and intersectionality. Researchers from diverse disciplines—especially history, sociology, and anthropology—explored a wide array of contexts, including understudied topics like Central Eastern Europe, Southern Europe, Scandinavia, West Africa and Latin America. These papers also studied a wide range of actors, such as gay cismen, transgender people, sex workers of various gender identities and sexual orientations, and ethnic minorities of diverse gender identities and sexual orientations.
