CBGHP Colloquia - Book Talk with Aziza Ahmed

Thursday, January 23 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Law Building (LAW), 3500
401 East Peltason Drive Irvine, CA 92697-8000

Join Chancellor's Professor Michele Goodwin and Professor Aziza Ahmed for a discussion of her forthcoming book, Feminism's Medicine: Law, Risk, Race, and Gender in an Epidemic. Against a linear narrative of scientific discovery and progress, Feminism’s Medicine argues that it was women’s rights lawyers and activists that fundamentally altered the legal and scientific response to the epidemic by changing core conceptions of who was at risk of contracting HIV.

Aziza Ahmed is Associate Professor of Law at Northeastern School of Law. She is an expert in health law, human rights, property law, international law, and development. Her interdisciplinary scholarship focuses on issues of both domestic and international law.
