Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Contributors from the United States, Canada, and Australia, working in university-based and community-based environments and for divergent communities—present specific experiences in the fight against HIV/AIDS. They share stories of shifting paradigms and challenging norms, and of seeking and finding innovation. Topics examined include the struggle for meaning and power in HIV/AIDS education, HIV prevention workers and injection drug users, community-based research, grassroots response to HIV/AIDS in Nova Scotia, sex workers and HIV/AIDS education, and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and legacy recruitment for experimental vaccines. By examining HIV/AIDS through an adult education lens, we gain insights into how communities (and governments) can respond quickly and effectively to emergent health issues—and other issues linked to marginalization.

This is the 105th issue of the quarterly report series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education.

Table of Contents

EDITOR’S NOTES (John P. Egan).

1. The Struggle for Meaning and Power in HIV/AIDS Education (Ronald M. Cervero)

Community, power, and structural issues often intersect in planning effective HIV/AIDS education for adults.

2. HIV-Positive Adults’ Meaning Making over Time (Lisa M. Baumgartner)

The experiences of HIV-positive men and women in finding meaning in their lives—in personal and professional terms—is the focus of this chapter.

3. HIV Prevention Workers and Injection Drug Users: A Problem-Based Realm of Adult Education Practice (John P. Egan)

This chapter examines how HIV prevention targeted to injection drug users often confounds traditional categorizations. Do we categorize fields of practice in terms of educators’ areas of training or expertise, or in terms of how learners view services?

4. Bad Blood: The Tuskegee Syphilis Study and Legacy Recruitment for Experimental AIDS Vaccines (Kimberly Sessions Hagen)

Adult education principles are improving the way volunteers are recruited for HIV vaccine clinical trials—especially in the African American community.

5. HIV/AIDS Community-Based Research (Terry Trussler, Rick Marchand)

Community-based research in HIV/AIDS, informed significantly by adult education principles, brings the power of the research enterprise to the community.

6. Asserting a Positive Role: HIV-Positive People in Prevention (Brent Allan, William Leonard)

HIV prevention shouldn’t be about isolating HIV-negative and HIV-positive persons from one another. HIV-positive men and women have always played and continue to play a key role in stemming the epidemic.

7. Grassroots Response to HIV/AIDS in Nova Scotia (Donovan Plumb)

When learning was examined beyond individually focused frameworks, a rich meshwork of knowledges emerged from the collective experience of Nova Scotians.

8. Poz-itively Transformational: Sex Workers and HIV/AIDS Education (Robert J. Hill)

Transphobia, sexphobia, and homophobia often conspire to marginalize transgender sex workers. But workers themselves are effecting change through their own educational programs.

9. Marginalized, Not Marginal: Adult Education’s Unique Contribution to the Fight Against HIV/AIDS (John P. Egan)

With or without acceptance from the mainstream, adult educators from diverse communities assert their place in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
