Anthropology of AIDS: Modes of Engagement
This special issue is the ﬁfth to focus on AIDS in Medical Anthropology; since the ﬁrst, two special issues have focused on the prevention of HIV transmission and one on AIDS treatment. The focus of the current issue is on the normalization of HIV/AIDS, implying that this might be the last.
In 1989, Medical Anthropology was the ﬁrst journal in the ﬁeld to publish a special issue on anthropology and AIDS, titled “The AIDS Pandemic: A Global Emergency.” Lawrence Greene, the journal’s editor at the time, anticipated that there would be more special issues to come on this “timely subject”.
