Engaging perspectives on global health and HIV/AIDS research from across social science, biomedicine, and related disciplines, Dialogues aims to bring scholars, researchers, authors, activists, and students into conversation with one another and with their audiences. Our aims with this forum are multiple. First, we seek to create a space in which authors can reflect in an open-ended and conversational way on their research and writing, and in which readers can bring their questions and engagements with scholarly literature to the fore. Second, we seek to create a forum for conversation across and within the varied disciplines working in and on global health and HIV/AIDS research. How do scholars from multiple fields conduct, understand, and engage global health research? What are key points of commonality and divergence across disciplines? Finally, what do ethnographic and anthropological engagements have to say to, with, or about other modes of research or knowledge-production that make up global health and HIV/AIDS scholarship today?
Contributions may include author interviews, conversations and round tables. Is there someone from whom you’d like to hear more? Someone you’d like to interview? Or a conversation you’d like to have? We welcome suggestions and contributions for interviews with authors of books and articles, for conversations between scholars or colleagues, for engagements with activists, scholars and practitioners, or for alternative forms of dialogic encounter. Submissions (and suggestions) may be written or multi-media.
