In this recording, two cultural historians, Dr Hannah Elizabeth and Dr Janet Weston share their research recovering the hidden histories of people affected during the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Their work unearths the stories of those often missing from mainstream narratives about HIV in the UK and Europe, such as people living and working in prisons, drug users, mothers and children, sex workers and social workers.
You will learn how Hannah Elizabeth and Janet Weston’s research has been inspired by the archives and collections here at Wellcome Collection. A selection of our HIV/AIDS posters is available to view online.
The content includes swearing, images of naked bodies, and images of drug use.
The talk is facilitated by HIV activist and health communications professional Paul Steinberg.
This event took place in our building and on our YouTube channel.
