Seeing Red: HIV/AIDS and Public Policy in Canada / by Alexander McClelland


Excited about the launch of Seeing Red: HIV/AIDS and Public Policy in Canada from University of Toronto Press and editors Dr. Suzanne Hindmarch, Dr. Michael Orsini & Dr. Marilou Gagnon. As the book's cover describes: 

"Seeing Red offers the first critical analysis of HIV/AIDS policy in Canada. Featuring the diverse experiences of people living with HIV, this collection highlights various perspectives from academics, activists, and community workers who look ahead to the new and complex challenges associated with HIV/AIDS and Canadian society."

Along with my co-authors Dr. Adrian Guta and Dr. Nicole Greenspan I wrote a chapter for the book that was inspired by the first ever paper I wrote in my university career, where we critique the politics of inclusion and representation, a politics that can result in the radical, transformative and emancipatory objectives of activists being subsumed and coopted into the bureaucratic, institutional and managerial logic of NGOs.
