Rethinking the "Straight State": Welfare Politics, Health Care, and Public Policy in the United States in the Shadow of AIDS
B40 Lecture Theatre |

Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Jonathan Bell, Professor of US History, UCL-Institute of the Americas
In this lecture, Professor Bell will consider together questions of political economy and sexual politics to establish how liberal politicians, health care advocacy groups, and queer activists understood and debated health care policy in the USA between the late 1970s and late 1980s.
He will argue that efforts of AIDS activists to access private and public health benefits highlighted the inadequacies of a system predicated upon the centrality of disability as a marker of eligibility for health benefits.
