INTD 100 Aids: Views From Several Angles

Co-coordinators: Diana Brown and Lindsay Watton

CRN: 12263

Time: Mon 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm OLIN 203

Two credits. Aids has become part of the fabric of our lives, touching us personally and rapidly transforming the social and political scene. The epidemic "is posing new questions about learning and human suffering...AIDS moves along the fault lines of our society, and becomes a metaphor for understanding that society." (Bateson and Goldsby, Thinking about AIDS). Guest speakers and Bard Professors will address these and other issues: the biology and psychology of sexually transmitted diseases, social policy and the changing nature of the crisis during the last 10 years, and artistic responses to the epidemic. Mid-term exam and short papers required. Register with Professor Diana Brown.
