Northwestern University professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Celeste Watkins-Hayes, will discuss her new book, Remaking A Life: How Women Living with HIV/AIDS Confront Inequality. The work is based on more than a decade of interviews with over 100 women living with HIV, as well as activists, advocates, policy makers, and HIV service providers. Professor Watkins-Hayes discusses the transformative process in which women described “dying from” to “living with” HIV, as the lens for examining women’s strategies to cope with injuries of inequality.
Remarks will be made by:
- Kihana Miraya Ross, African American Studies
- Héctor Carrillo, Sociology and Gender & Sexuality Studies
- Lindsay Chase-Lansdale, Human Development & Social Policy and Vice-Provost
A reception will follow.
