Contestations of Borders and Infectious Disease in Southwest China

(p.189) 6 Everyday Aids Practices
Postcolonial Disorders

Sandra Teresa Hyde

University of California Press

This chapter examines HIV as a spatialized disease, identified with communities at the borderlands along China's multiethnic southern frontier during the late-socialist period. It shows how political subjectivity and everyday practices of surveillance and implementation of public health policies not only link local, national, and global interventions in China's HIV crisis, but how they also inscribe the sovereignty of the state onto subjects in the borderlands. The chapter provides brief histories on the question of sovereignty and on the social epidemiology of HIV in southwest China, exploring four narratives of the everyday AIDS practices of state actors and their political subjectivity.

Keywords:   HIV, borderlands, China, political subjectivity, public health policies, sovereignty, social epidemiology
