AIDS in Literature (4/14/06; MMLA, 11/09-12/06; Chicago, IL)
 
In "AIDS, Keywords and Cultural Work," Jan Zita Grover remarks that people infected with HIV/AIDS find the boundaries of normativity challenged and re-configured and that people carrying the virus no longer view themselves as integrated, "but instead as a container for the virus." Michel Foucault underscores Grover's claim, linking the fear of death resulting from AIDS to using such fractive or dis-integrative strategies to cope with the fear of impending death.

Alice Walker's story "Everyday Use" uses quilts as a symbol for her
characters' familial past. These quilts, though certainly valuable
artistically, must still be of everyday use to the family. The quilts
will wear out from use, certainly, but these worn squares would be, as
they've always been, replaced with new squares; the piece from
great-great-grandma's sundress might be replaced with a patch from
daddy's overalls.
