This course is the second term of the two-term required course for students admitted to the Student Opportunities for AIDS/HIV Research (SOAR) program. This course will prepare students for graduate education and eventual research careers in behavioral and social science research (BSSR) on HIV/AIDS, with a focus on sexual and gender minority communities. We will cover interdisciplinary topics about HIV and sexual and gender minority health populations, with a focus on theoretical and methodological frameworks such as intersectionality and HIV, critical race theory and HIV, queer theory and HIV, and minority stress theory and HIV. Specific sections of the course will include interdisciplinary explorations of health inequities and social determinants of health, especially as they apply to HIV, ethnic/racial minorities, sexual and gender minorities and women. The course will explore research ethics through study of events such as the Tuskegee experiments, J. Marion Sim’s gynecological experimentation on enslaved Black women, and ACT UP’s treatment activism and collaboration in the early days of the AIDS crisis. Students will also develop a scientific foundation in HIV, HIV research, and BSSR.

Intended Audience:

If you are a rising junior and interested in the SOAR program, applications are due on Thursday, March 31, 2022.  More information is here
