New Article out in Continuum on AIDS Activism and BBS

I’m very happy to have contributed an article to this wonderful issue of Continuum on Remediating 1980s Activism, edited by Elizabeth Groeneveld and Samantha C. Thrift. This article draws on the archival research I have done on Kiyoshi Kuromiya and the Critical Path AIDS Project, based out of Philadelphia, to talk about how communities of people living with HIV drew on new computer network technologies to circulate vital information, online and in print. Thanks to the the John J. Wilcox Jr. Archives in Philadelphia for hosting my research. I hope the article will add a media studies perspective to the growing history of Kuromiya’s important work on HIV treatment activism, prison abolition, and community-based information infrastructure (see also Che Gossett’s amazing “We Will Not Rest in Peace” in Queer Necropolitics, 2014).
