Welcome to H-Histsex, H-Net's Network on the history of sexuality. We're seeking new editors to join us. See our announcement here.
The Raphael Samuel History Centre has organised a public history festival, AIDS Histories & Cultures, taking place across London throughout July. It aims to explore how HIV/AIDS has been experienced, represented, and remembered through workshops, film screenings, concerts, talks, walks, and performance.
Subjects include the foundation of the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS, Christianity and HIV, AIDS in the archives, memories of HIV nursing, and the impact of clause 28.
