Product Overview

In some parts of South Africa, more than one in three people are HIVpositive. Love in the Time of AIDS explores transformations in notions of gender andintimacy to try to understand the roots of this virulent epidemic. By living in aninformal settlement and collecting love letters, cell phone text messages, oralhistories, and archival materials, Mark Hunter details the everyday socialinequalities that have resulted in untimely deaths. Hunter shows how first apartheidand then chronic unemployment have become entangled with ideas about femininity, masculinity, love, and sex and have created an economy of exchange that perpetuatesthe transmission of HIV/AIDS. This sobering ethnography challenges conventionalunderstandings of HIV/AIDS in South Africa.
