Final Call for Papers:
Aids in Culture VI: Explorations in the Cultural History of AIDS
Mexico City, 8 - 14 December 2010
Conference Homepage: http://www.aidsinculture.org
AIDS is not simply an illness or a biomedical phenomenon. The conference cycle "AIDS in Culture" organised by Enkidu Magazine in Mexico City and the International Society for Cultural History and Cultural Studies (CHiCS) in cooperation with CNDH (The National Human Rights Commission in Mexico) seeks to examine cultural responses to AIDS in different cultures and societies across a wide range of perspectives. This interdisciplinary conference cycle explores the processes by which AIDS is constructed as a cultural phenomenon and how different societies in their encounters with AIDS attempt to create meaning in health, illness and disease.
The conference aims at bringing together academics working in all relevant disciplines as well as activists, artists and other professionals.
The deadline is rapidly approaching for registrations of paper proposals for the annual Aids in Culture conference in Mexico. This year we will organize “Aids in Culture: Explorations in the Cultural History of AIDS” International Conference for the sixth time.
