Witness Seminars

As part of my work on Disentangling European HIV/AIDS Policies: Activism, Citizenship and Health (EUROPACH), I co-convened a series of witness seminars aimed at enhancing historical understandings of HIV in the UK.

The witness seminar as a method sits between a focus group and an oral history interview, and is intended to enable a group retelling of a particular historical event by people who were involved. This series included seminars on the topics of: Antiretroviral DrugsThe Criminalisation of HIV TransmissionHIV Prevention and Health Promotion, and Women and HIV.

You can read more about the series in a post I’ve written for the CISP blog and you can read the witness seminar texts on the EUROPACH website
