HIV/AIDS and Global Health at Duke University

Students in Kearsley (Karrie) Stewart’s “Global Narratives of HIV/AIDS” course have been exploring different ways of artistically reinterpreting medical anthropologist Maria de Bruyn's portfolio of AIDS-related literature. These students are creating art with duplicated pages from de Bruyn’s collection, now a part of the Rubenstein Library History of Medicine archives, leaving only selected words visible to reveal unexpected themes and ideas hidden within the original texts -- a method inspired by Thomas Phillips' book, "A Humument."
