Pandemic in South Africa

November 17, 2011

Evanston, Ill., — Professor Jonny Steinberg will speak at Northwestern University as part of the Gertrude

and G.D. Crain Jr. Lecture Series on December 1, 2011.

His talk, “HIV/AIDS in Africa and Beyond: The Story the Media Missed,” will begin at 4 p.m. in the

McCormick Tribune Center Forum, 1870 Campus Drive, on the Evanston campus. Presented by the

Program of African Studies and Medill, it is free and open to the public. Parking is free.

Jonny Steinberg is the author of “Sizwe’s Test: A Young Man’s Journey Through Africa’s AIDS Epidemic”

which was chosen as one of the ten best books for 2008 by the Washington Post. Two previous

books, “Midlands” and “The Number” both won the South Africa’s premier nonfiction literary award, the

Alan Paton Prize. His most recent work, His latest book, “Little Liberia: An African Odyssey in New York,”

focused on the lives of Liberian refugees living in New York. Steinberg has covered South Africa’s political

and cultural landscape with rare insight, including the continuing AIDS pandemic in his country.

Building on his previous work on HIV/AIDS testing in South Africa and his book, Sizwe, he will address

emerging issues in the HIV/AIDS pandemic in South Africa by focusing on how the increased availability

of AIDS treatment (anti-retroviral medication) is changing South African society in unexpected ways. He

will focus specifically on how gender affects willingness to take medicine - particularly the differences

between young men and young women.

The Gertrude and G.D. Crain Jr. Lecture Series regularly brings journalists, newsmakers and others

discussing current events and the news business to Northwestern’s Evanston campus.
