Scope and content:

The collection consists of two years of student work from Duke University's Global Narratives of HIV/AIDS course, taught by Kearsley Stewart. The work includes student papers and reflections as well as Humament-inspired artwork inspired by student engagement with the Maria de Bruyn Papers at Rubenstein Library. Some of the artwork was displayed in Perkins Library on the Student Wall in 2016-2017. Student names and titles for their pieces are recorded in the collection's boxes.

Biographical / historical:

Duke University professor Kearsley Stewart led the Global Narratives of HIV/AIDS course in 2016 and 2017, where undergraduates in the Global Health program worked with poet/writer Kelley Swain to create Humament-inspired pieces drawn from the Maria de Bruyn Papers, an archival collection in the History of Medicine Collection at Rubenstein Library. "Humament" is a combination of the words "human" and "document" originating from British artist Tom Phillips; Swain has developed workshops on the Humament art book to allow new explorations in historical narratives.
