Global Perspectives on Religion and HIV/AIDS Seminar

Statement of Purpose: 

This Seminar brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to develop an analysis of the various roles religion has played historically and continues to occupy in shaping the global AIDS pandemic. We are particularly interested in examining how religion and HIV cuts across, generates, and challenges social, economic, geographic, and cultural differences. In addition to building theoretical and conceptual tools for understanding religion and AIDS, we aim to create an anthology appropriate for a wide academic audience interested in the religious and moral dimensions of the AIDS epidemic, including their effects on the lived experience of disease and the formation of religious and public health efforts to fight HIV/AIDS and prevent infection. Much of the work of our multiyear Seminar focuses on creating an internally cohesive project that incorporates our diverse methodological and regional perspectives, but shares a set of common themes and questions concerning the convergence of religion and HIV/AIDS over the past three decades. We seek to advance existing research and to foster new studies of this important, emerging field.

Much of the work of our multi-year seminar focuses on creating an internally cohesive project that incorporates our diverse methodological and regional perspectives but shares a set of common themes and questions concerning the convergence of religion and HIV/AIDS over the past three decades. This is the fourth year of the seminar and we are especially interested in considering proposals on religion and HIV/AIDS in Asia, Latin America, and Europe, and on HIV/AIDS and non-Christian traditions. Scholars interested in joining this conversation are encouraged to contact the chairs, Lynne Gerber, l.gerber@berkeley.edu, or Anthony Petro, apetro@bu.edu, for more information and/or details about submitting a proposal.
