Meddling with Mythology: AIDS and the Social Construction of Knowledge (Paperback)

£38.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Meddling with Mythology examines the role of research in the construction of modern mythology or folklore surrounding HIV/AIDS.

Researchers from a variety of disciplines reflect on the insights gained and the impact of their work, in light of the initial panic surrounding the prediction of an AIDS epidemic.

Issues discussed include:-

* power

* representation

* the politics of text

* understanding research relationships

* impact of research on researchers and responders

* potential for change.

Meddling with Mythology takes the reader from the theoretical to the practicable and from the public to the personal in the representations of AIDS. The issues raised here also have great significance for those concerned with the social construction of knowledge, theory building and the research process more generally.
