    Suite Triomphale (A Triumphant Sequel) Annotated Bibliography 2

    Introduction This post concerns my research into the relation between subculture and the HIV epidemic. Through this research I will learn about deeper connections between artifacts and the culture all around us. By finding these deeper connections this research will uncover the true meaning of the different cultures our materialistic world embodies, finding connections we wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. These connections found in the sources will bond together to form a bigger picture and therefore a better understanding of the HIV epidemic, and the subculture it embodies.
