HRG Fellow

Humanities Research Group Fellow 2020-2021

Dr. Adrian Guta

School of Social Work

Dr. Adrian Guta is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Windsor and has training in social work, public health, and bioethics. As an interdisciplinary scholar, he conducts both social science research about health issues (e.g., interviews with healthcare providers and patients about how hospital care is delivered), and critical analysis in a health humanities tradition (e.g., using continental philosophy and discourse analysis to theorize changing ideas about care and the relationship between the body, technology, and forms of governance). His substantive focus for over 15 years has been the health and wellness needs of people living with HIV and people who use drugs about which he has written on the social and structural determinants of health, community engagement, and ethical issues in research, care, and public health interventions. Dr. Guta has received funding from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. The focus of Dr. Guta’s HRG fellowship is molecular HIV surveillance and what it means for the health of people living with HIV and medicine and public health broadly.

Adrian Guta’s fellowship lecture will be “Surveillance, HIV, and the molecular (re)turn: Lessons from 40 years of the HIV prevention, treatment, and care response.”
