Platform 2016: A Matter of Urgency and Agency: HIV/AIDS Now (CUNY)

Drawings by John Bernd. Courtesy of the estate of John Bernd.

This evening with Jawanza James Williams (Voices of Community Activists and Leaders (VOCAL-NY)), Theodore (ted) Kerr (writer and organizer), Kenyon Farrow (essayist and US & Global Health Policy Director for Treatment Action Group), Robert Sember (Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts at The New School’s Eugene Lang College and member of the sound-art collective Ultra-red), and iele paloumpis (dance artist and death doula) will focus on the work of current activists and will attempt to articulate and historicize contemporary issues related to HIV/AIDS. We aim to push forward and circulate current knowledge production of various kinds as well as to produce strategies for archiving and theorizing the contemporary.

This is the second of two events produced in partnership with the Mediating the Archive Seminar, part of the Center for the Humanities’ Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research, to take place at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Organized by Jaime Shearn Coan, Danspace Curatorial Fellow and Janet Werther, CFH Research Fellow, with the assistance of faculty co-leaders Amy Herzog and Edward D. Miller.
