Ask the Professor Series: HIV and AIDS: Where are We Today?
Tuesday, 3/21, 6 - 7 pm

Dr. Boriana Marintcheva will provide overview on the progress science and medicine have made in understanding, treating and preventing HIV infections since the onset of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Dr. Marintcheva will discuss how treatment and testing protocols have changed as a function of understanding HIV virus inner workings and its interactions with the human body. Special emphasis will be placed on parallels between our society reactions toward HIV 50 years ago and the most recent Ebola scare.

Dr. Marintcheva is a molecular virologist who joined the Biology Department of Bridgewater State University in 2008 where she teaches Virology, Cell Biology and Molecular Biology.  She has published numerous articles reporting scientific research and the development of new pedagogical tools. Dr. Marintcheva has studied the mode of propagation of Herpes virus (University of Connecticut) and bacteriophage T7 (Harvard Medical School). She has received a BSU Presidential fellowship to write a book, Harnessing the Power of Viruses, focusing on applications of viruses and knowledge about them to solve practical problems and develop new technology.

 Ask the Professor Series: Provincetown: Community Culture-Building in an Era of Crisis
Thursday, 3/30, 6 - 7 pm

Locals and visitors alike describe Provincetown as a mecca of acceptance across the divide of difference, where diverse constituencies--gay and straight--have learned to come together, embrace one another, and get along.  How did Provincetown, a traditionally Portuguese-dominated fishing village at the tip of Cape Cod, become so tolerant of others whose conduct they didn’t embrace, and with whom they didn’t always get along?  Dr. Sandra Faiman-Silva will explore the history of the Cape’s land’s end community and what we can learn, as the United States confronts a resurgence of intolerance and even hate across social divides. 

Sandra Faiman-Silva, Ph.D. is Professor Emerita and former Chair in BSU’s Department of Anthropology, where she taught for nearly thirty years.  She retired in 2015.  Her areas of expertise include gender, Native North and Latin America, folklore, ethnicity, and political economy.  She has conducted study tours to Cuba and Belize.  She is a social justice activist in her hometown, Falmouth, and serves on the Boards of the Coalition for Social Justice and Independence House, Inc.
