Bias and crime.
The two are hot topics, but how do they combine in the arena of HIV? That’s what two lectures at Grand Valley State University’s Allendale Campus will explore on April 13.
The first lecture is by Trevor Hoppe, an associate professor of sociology at SUNY-Albany, at 3 p.m. in room 114 Lake Michigan Hall. His lecture is titled “Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalizing of Sickness.” Hoppe has a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and did his doctoral thesis on Michigan’s HIV criminal law.
The second lecture will be by Todd Heywood, a Between The Lines reporter and national expert on HIV criminal laws, at 6:30 p.m. at 220 Honors. His lecture is titled “The Inherent Bias Underlying HIV Prevention.”
Both lectures are free and open to the public.
