Amy Braksmajer, Andrew London
"'It’s history in the making all around us': examining COVID-19 through the lenses of HIV and epidemic history," co-authored by Professor Andrew London, was published in Culture, Health & Sexuality. The study aims to determine how men living in the USA make sense of COVID-19 in the light of their collective knowledge and/or memories of the HIV pandemic, and provides evidence regarding the social organization of a contemporary pandemic and how individuals perceive and guard against risk, assign responsibility for virus transmission and acquisition, and navigate the threat of a potentially deadly infection.
