The papers of medical anthropologist Maria de Bruyn, a recent acquisition by the History of Medicine Collections, will be the focus of several events this fall.
On November 30, the Franklin Humanities Institute Health Humanities Lab will host a special World AIDS Day event featuring a keynote address by de Bruyn and a lecture by poet and writer Kelley Swain. The event will also feature a talk by Alicia Diggs, Board Member of NCAAN North Carolina AIDS Action Network.
Students in professor Kearsley Stewart's Duke Global Health Institute seminar on HIV/AIDS will discuss their three-week workshop with Swain and present an exhibit of their work based on materials from the Maria de Bruyn collection.
Reception to follow. Free and open to the public.
