    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?

Dr. Sow a leading cultural anthropologist, explains why a whole continent can be examined as a whole instead of distinct parts. “Despite the differences between Africans from different cultures in terms of geography, linguistics, religiosity and ways of life, there is a dominant socio-religious philosophy shared by all Africans. To talk of an overarching African perspective or African worldview that can be distinguished from a Western and an Eastern…

    Globalization of Family Identity and HIV/AIDS

          My Research so Far This post is one of many that describes the use of a quilt panel from the Names project to gain a deeper analytical understanding of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The first thing I did to research and better understand the panel was through  the use of  primary source descriptions of the front and back of the panel. The second part of my research into this panel involved the use of my first and second annotated bibliographies. All of these activities have led to this one, our final analysis. This analysis is used to discover a deeper connection between the HIV/AIDS epidemic and a subculture embodied…
