Gender and cultural studies in Africa and the diaspora
附註 Includes bibliographical references (pages 173-184) and index
Advice is good medicine -- Funny, yet sorrowful -- "Nobody fears AIDS, Mphutsi is more fire" -- Mgoneko
Informal folk narrative genres such as gossip, advice, rumor, and urban legends provide a unique lens through which to discern popular formations of gender conflict and AIDS beliefs. This is the first book on AIDS and gender in Africa to draw primarily on such narratives. By exploring tales of love medicine, gossip about romantic rivalries, rumors of mysterious new diseases, marital advice, and stories of rape, among others, it provides rich, personally grounded insights into the everyday struggles of people living in an era marked by social upheaval
