Book Description: Acting on HIV offers a sustained and relatively systematic inquiry into drama as an approach to discussion of HIV/AIDS and related attitudes and behaviors. A distinctive feature of the research that is presented in Acting on HIV is the emphasis on the potential for and value of using drama to promote vital social change in addition to individual behaviour change. It has a strong theoretical foundation and seeks to interrogate the ethical, theoretical and practical complexities of using drama to address issues HIV & AIDS. The research that is communicated through the book is original and timely and will make a significant, trans-disciplinary contribution to scholarly conversations about the role/s and significance of drama in addressing issues of HIV & AIDS. Acting on HIV will have appeal to scholars working within drama and performance studies and those involved in interdisciplinary work or working in the fields of social work, education, sociology, psychology, cultural and media studies, gender studies, criminology, and critical human and social sciences generally including studies of HIV, sexuality and public health among others. Furthermore, the book targets community practitioners, teachers and researchers interested in drama for social change; arts based research methods and drama in education.

Book Description: In this book, Ezra Chitando calls upon African churches to train their voices in speaking out and challenging systems of oppression so that AIDS competent churches work towards the transformation of death-dealing practices while strengthening life-enhancing ones. He argues that the response of African churches to the HIV epidemic will be determined by the quality of their theological education and the ability of the current generation of Africans to question the culture it inherited, amongst other contextual issues. Chitando insists that not only must churches with quick feet, long arms, warm hearts and loud voices necessarily have sharp minds but that a critical analysis o African cultural beliefs and practices must occur. This openness to new idea and modes of thinking means that that African traditionalists, Africa Christians, African Muslims, followers of other religions and ideologies an secularists all need to engage in an open re-evaluation of African cultures in the context of HIV. Chitando courageously demands that the contemporary generation has the mandate to actively critique what the previous generation bequeathed to it by deciding whether or not to uphold, transform or reject previously held beliefs and practices. This is the second of two books dealing with the response of African Churches to the HIV/AID epidemic.

Book Description: A Guide to Acting on AIDS is designed to equip Christian college students with a deeper awareness of the global AIDS pandemic, why their faith should inform their response and how they can put their faith into action. This practical study examines HIV/AIDS through a variety of different disciplines and perspectives, such as the scientific, socioeconomic, political and humanitarian impacts of the disease. Each chapter explores what the Bible says about these issues and what is being done globally to respond. The guide is designed for individuals or for groups and includes discussion questions and proposed action items for the readers. Acting on AIDS is a program started by Christian college students to create awareness and activism of the global AIDS pandemic at colleges and universities across the nation. With the support of World Vision, Christian college students have formed a network of Acting on AIDS chapters which seek to change hearts on campuses, create awareness in communities and advocate for those impacted by the global AIDS pandemic.

Book Description: 'Stages of Agency' is the first monograph to analyze the contributions of American stage drama to the discourse on AIDS in the United States from the mid-1980s through the late 1990s. This discourse provides a telling example of how the arts can become agents in socio-political debates. As the study shows, theater and drama played a unique role in educating the American public about AIDS, offering support for the sick and the grieving, and intervening in the mainstream societal perceptions and representations of the epidemic. Taking some of the best-known American AIDS plays as exemplary case studies, 'Stages of Agency' maps the diachronic development of this body of work in its increasing thematic, formal, and identity political heterogeneity. The study analyzes the strategies these plays employed to blend art with activism in order to establish a counter-discourse to the mainstream public debate about AIDS and provide social agency to the affected populations.

Book Description: This paper describes the experience of Senegal, a country that has worked hard to prevent HIV spreading, and that has maintained one of the lowest rates of infection in sub-Saharan Africa. It looks at how the country reacted to the threat of the disease, and examines whether that reaction had any effect on people's behaviour and, ultimately, on rates of HIV infection in the country.
