Asha Persson

Senior Research Fellow
Senior Lecturer

Dr Asha Persson is a Senior Research Fellow with the Centre for Social Research in Health (formerly the National Centre in HIV Social Research). She was awarded a PhD in social anthropology from Sydney University in 2001. She took up her position at CSRH in 2001.

Research Areas
Over the past 18 years, Asha has conducted a range of qualitative projects on various cultural and lived aspects of HIV, with particular focus on previously hidden or under-researched populations in the Australian epidemic, including heterosexuals, children growing up with HIV, straight-identified men who have sex with men, couples with mixed HIV status, and families living with a blood-borne virus. Her research aims to draw attention to the experiences and needs of these populations and to contribute to scholarly knowledge of the cultural interplay between illness, medicine, gender, sexuality and society.

Asha has published widely in high-profile international journals in the fields of health sociology, medical anthropology, cultural studies and HIV.

Areas of expertise for supervision
Social anthropology, ethnography, cultural phenomenology, embodiment, medicine, cultural practice, gender and sexuality, health and illness, HIV/AIDS.
