Memory Lives On Symposium: Documenting the HIV/AIDS Epidemic

Memory Lives On Symposium: Documenting the HIV/AIDS Epidemic

Registration now open: https://www.library.ucsf.edu/archives/aids/memory-lives-on/

Join UCSF Archives & Special Collections for this interdisciplinary symposium exploring and reflecting on topics related to archives and the practice of documenting the stories of HIV/AIDS. 

The task of documenting the history of HIV/AIDS and thinking about the present and future of the epidemic is daunting. The enormity and complexity of the stories and perspectives on the disease, which has affected so many millions of patients and families around the world, present significant challenges that demand continual reexamination. In examining and reflecting on our knowledge of the history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and its future, we hope to improve our understanding of the true effects of the disease, and what it can teach us about future epidemics.

The Symposium will take place in Byers Auditorium in Genentech Hall at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus in San Francisco. The program will be an afternoon session and evening reception on day one, followed by a full day of presentations on day two. 

New ticket price: $30. Scholarships available (apply here)

This event is brought to you by the UCSF Archives & Special Collections. Food will be provided to attendees.
