Title: Rhetoric and fictions of AIDS.
Author: Wilde, Rikki
Issue Date: 2006
School/Discipline: School of Humanities
Abstract: A thesis which examines the rhetoric used when describing and discussing AIDS, especially in the Australian context. The debate concerns the cultural symptomology of AIDS, the signification of AIDS discourses, questioning notions of material representation in cultural production, especially as regards to the establishment of a naturalized rhetoric. The discussion in this thesis is interpolated into the rhetoric employed by writers, filmakers, public servants, queer communities, AIDS Councils and gay men’s health organizations, etc. Competing rhetorics are examined to reveal how HIV/AIDS subjects are constructed and controlled.
