This course is an interdisciplinary survey of the major issues and challenges of the AIDS pandemic, introducing students to a broadly based overview of its scientific, social and cultural impacts. It also examines the interaction of personal and experiential perspectives with collective values, beliefs and behaviours in response to the health crisis worldwide and locally. Students examine the history of the pandemic and responses to it by governments, medical authorities, businesses, religious and community groups, as well as artists and cultural producers. Readings and requirements are diverse in nature and it is possible to submit creative work as part of the course assignments.
NOTE: Students who have received credit for FFAR 398F, INTE 398G, FFAR 290, INTE 270, COMS 399A or SOCI 399H may not take this course for credit.
