    General Outline (Thesis Dissected)

    Through my research I found that a persons family identity, including traditions and belief have a major impact on how they respond to HIV/AIDS. This response in the scope of family identity and tradition can actually lead to unforeseen consequences, both positive and negative. How do family life and culture relate to HIV/AIDS epidemic?, What is the impact of family life and culture on HIV? How does this impact affect the populace? What are the unforeseen ways the epidemic affects how people react to HIV? Why would belief and tradition affect the HIV epidemic? How does the way people react to HIV affect the epidemic itself?

    Review of Anna’s Adventures

    The introduction organizes the body of the paper well. Establishing the topic discussed and telling the reader what they’re about to read. However, the introduction could have included more about the quilt’s involvement in her decision to choose Military and HIV/AIDS, instead of say Mickey mouse or say Disney and HIV/AIDS. She also could have explained her research process more. The evidence used were policies from the national government displaying why the connection between HIV/AIDS, and the military. The use of policies as evidence gives a deeper understanding of her ethos and brings a connection between the military and gay culture as well as AIDS/HIV.
