Chase Ledin holds a PhD in Social and Cultural Theory from the University of Edinburgh. His thesis explored the sociocultural impacts of ‘post-AIDS’ health promotion and visual cultures in the United Kingdom and United States. His postdoctoral research investigates sociocultural aspects of unprescribed antibiotic use amongst gay and bisexual men in the UK. Generally, his work cuts across medical humanities, science and technology studies, queer cultural studies, and film studies. Outwith research, Chase is interested in the development of queer sexual health education and policy in Scotland. His creative work contributes to ongoing projects to historicize and archive HIV/AIDS narratives and includes critical writing about polyamory, the ethics of sexual health education, and the cultural histories of sexology in the UK.
