  • Course Dates: Sat 15 November 2014, 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm

The storm of the HIV and AIDS epidemic has been an apocalyptic event that has presented our world with suffering, death, shame and the rising of hope in hopelessness.

Living in post-HIV and AIDS apocalypse, we are picking up pieces to rebuild, but what are these pieces that remain in our broken landscape?

The lecture will be followed by questions and a discussion between Musa Dube and The Rt Revd Dr Peter Selby, formerly Bishop of Worcester and Bishop to HM Prisons, and Visiting Professor in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at King’s College.

The lecture is free, optional supper at 7pm is £15 per person.
