This one-day symposium seeks to draw together research on HIV and AIDS across Europe in historical perspective, to encourage comparative perspectives and to consider resonances and dissonances between them. It will provide an opportunity for scholars at all career stages to discuss their work and to identify key avenues for further research.

Themes may include AIDS and HIV in relation to young people, women, and families, immigration, sex workers, and national politics, and the position of transnational networks and North American influences within Europe. These are suggestions only: we look forward to seeing what further themes may emerge. We will aim to include papers focusing on a variety of different European settings.

The symposium will be held towards the end of a month-long public Festival of AIDS Cultures and Histories taking place in London and Amsterdam.

Please note that the symposium will follow a workshop format, with pre-circulated papers.
