This event will discuss the role of stigma and diversity in people's experiences of HIV through a multidisciplinary approach combining media studies, psychology, philosophy, sociology and nursing. The event will launch with a workshop run by the George House Trust, where an expert in HIV and a person living with HIV will talk about their experiences and answer questions from the public. Then, we will have a roundtable with the following speakers:
Rusi Jaspal (Professor of Psychology and Sexual Health, De Montfort University),
Brian Heaphy (Professor of Sociology, University of Manchester),
Jamie Hakim (Lecturer in Media Studies, East Anglia University),
Phil Hutchinson (Lecturer in Philosophy, Manchester Metropolitan University) and
Michelle Croston (Nursing, Manchester Metropolitan University).
After the roundtable, there will be an exhibition of photographs taken as part of Angelia Cabeza's research for there PhD at the University of Manchester. Free refreshments and cakes will be available.
