Today we will discuss the history of pediatric AIDS, and talk about lessons from that history that help us see the COVID-19 pandemic more clearly.
Jason M Chernesky EARNED HIS PhD in the History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania. He studies the histories of health care, children's health, public health, and environmental history in the twentieth-century United States. His dissertation, “The Littlest Victims”: Pediatric AIDS and the Urban Ecology of Health in the Late Twentieth-Century United States, explores what happens when a disease associated with the taboo behavior of adults begins affecting infants and children. Pediatric AIDS was a disease of poverty, which became closely associated with the multiple problems of the inner city – an urban geography that, for many Americans, was situated "elsewhere." Jason’s other scholarly interests include urban history, public history, and cultural history.
