520    The beginnings of Atlas of AIDS: Culture, Circulation and 
       AIDS in Latin America propose that AIDS can work as a 
       network between major cities. The project seeks to address
       the relation between such cities---New York, San Juan, 
       Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo---and the production of culture
       in the Americas throughout the 1990s by means of four 
       Latin American writers with AIDS. It suggests that these 
       writers' texts and poetics contribute to an ongoing debate
       about culture and politics in its complex interaction with
       the changing development of AIDS 
520    The first chapter discusses the work of Cuban writer 
       Reinaldo Arenas (1943-1990) and the city of New York, 
       thinking of this city as a very important enclave for 
       Latin American culture. It also poses questions about 
       citizenship and migration by means of this writer in exile
       living with HIV in the United States 
520    The second chapter focuses on San Juan and two Puerto 
       Rican artists, the painter Carlos Collazo (1956-1990) and 
       the writer Manuel Ramos Otero (1948-1990). This section 
       traces the possible counterpoint between history and 
       fiction after contracting the virus 
520    The third chapter studies the artwork of Argentinean 
       painter Guillermo Kuitca as a way of using maps to read 
       the circulation of AIDS throughout urban spaces in 
       relation to the work of Argentinean writer Nester 
       Perlongher (1949-1992). This study of Perlongher allows a 
       comparison between Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo while 
       discussing issues of language, traveling, and sexuality 
520    The fourth chapter questions different ways of narrating 
       the fear and paranoia of possibly contracting AIDS, mainly
       through the medical memoir Estacao Carandiru (1999) by 
       Drauzio Varella and the published letters of Brazilian 
       writer Caio Fernando Abreu (1948-1996). The letters 
       outline the changes of AIDS and eventually incorporate the
       writer's own experience with AIDS, blurring the line 
       between the public and the private spheres 
520    This Atlas of AIDS also puts forward that these writers 
       were already generating ideas about AIDS in the 
       intellectual arena that would eventually become central to
       the history and tradition of AIDS in the cities of Latin
