In honor of World AIDS Day (Friday, Dec. 1), join author Margaret Galvan in conversation with UF professor Kenneth Kidd at 6:30pm at Third House Books, as they talk about photographer Nan Goldin’s HIV/AIDS activism that Galvan writes about in her new book, In Visible Archives: Queer and Feminist Visual Culture in the 1980s.
The book examines the artwork of eight women and how their work intersects with cultural touchstones like the feminist sex wars, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and countercultural grassroots periodical networks.
Margaret Galvan is Assistant Professor of Visual Rhetoric in the Department of English at UF. Her archivally-informed research examines how visual culture operates within social movements. See margaretgalvan.org for more information.
