Alexander McClelland

I examine the lived experience of people with HIV in Canada who have been labelled as criminal for allegedly not telling their sex partners their HIV-positive status.

Alexander McClelland is a writer and researcher whose work focuses on the intersections of life, law and disease. He has developed a wide range of collaborative and interdisciplinary writing, academic, artistic and curatorial projects to address issues of criminalization, punishment, sexual autonomy, surveillance, drug liberation, and the construction of knowledge on HIV and AIDS. He lives between Montreal and Toronto.
