Folklore, Gender, and AIDS in Malawi : No Secret Under the Sun, Hardback Book

Folklore, Gender, and AIDS in Malawi : No Secret Under the Sun Hardback

Part of the Gender and Cultural Studies in Africa and the Diaspora series

Description

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.
