This is a truly interdisciplinary course, working with materials from the natural and social sciences and the arts and humanities. We will deal with a wide range of subjects from the biology of HIV and the medical treatment of AIDS to the politics and sociology of a world-wide epidemic and the nature of artistic creations in the midst of a terrible epidemic. Students will write papers, do class projects, and participate in discussions. There will be frequent quizzes. Class attendance is required, and classes will be devoted to discussion, conversations with guests, and occasional films.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory. No student will be admitted to this course after the first class.
