Call For Papers

The AIDS crisis in France and Francophone countries has seen the emergence of a “littérature SIDA,” as well as artistic expressions through various media such as photography or films. On August 23rd 2017, the movie 120 battements par minute (BPM), shed a light on the first years of activism of Act Up-Paris in the early 1990s. In April 2018, France Culture’s radio show LSD, La série documentaire, dedicated four days to the topic “Quand la création raconte le SIDA.” Despite the medical advances, both the movie and radio show reminded viewers and listeners of a duty to remember the AIDS crisis. This panel will focus on the representations of AIDS and the accompanying activism in literature, cinema and arts from French and Francophone artists. Please submit a 250-word abstract in French or English, a brief bio and A/V requirements to Olivier Le Blond, at , by June 4th, 2018.
