Final Analysis Formal Outline

Working title:  Dominating the discrimination & Negative Connotations of AIDS in Kenya

Thesis statement: Kenya, is a country within the African continent where  people,and the government,are relatively conservative with their beliefs and religion which creates a prominent view of different individuals.  A large demographic of Kenya is known to blame women, and those affiliated within the LGBTQ for the spread of HIV. From moral standards and conservative like views, these assumptions of who to blame are asserted into the Kenyan society. We can’t be blinded by the implemented values that clutch onto the society of Kenya, It is the people’s job to be well aware of how aids is contracted, and the treatment of those who fight this infamous disease.

Topic:Discrimination

Analysis Idea: How to fight discrimination among AIDS,How religious views beliefs in Kenya effect women and the LGBTQ in Kenya , Why do they draw a sort of correlation between women and the LGBTQ to AIDS. How is discrimination shown through Kenya whether it is government implemented, community oriented, or maybe through institutional ways.

 

Introduction

  1. (I will talk about the back ground of AIDS leading to the aids crisis)

2.  Programs such as the NAMES project is a viable source to the solution of stereotypes that weigh the victims of Aids down. When learning about Anthony Felix and Williams you start to think that anyone can be suffering from Aids, all walks of people from around the world can get it so I ask why does society uphold negative connotations in the past and present? I presume for me to be able to uncover the answer to this question I must dig into what created these stereotypes which had often lead to the discrimination of others. The NAMES project sheds some light on the topic of AIDS and we’re able to learn more of the regular everyday people who had fought through it, I think of the NAMES project as an ice breaker, still there are other ways we can put an end to this issue.

 

Body Structure

Both Individuals from my Panels didn’t provide much of what they were like before leaving the world, They did however have a love for art i can assume from the musical notes spread across both panels. I decided to just look further in ways discrimination is practiced to these victims and how the media may create a negative image that isn’t present in these victims.

Section 1: Anthony Felix/Billy Ryan Williams

a.( I will talk about as much as I know about Anthony Felix and Billy Ryan Williams)

b. ( the Purpose of this section is to break the stereotype that antagonizes people with aids in the past and present, I want to show that they’re everyday people capable of facing a disease like Aids.)

 

 

Section 2:

a.( I want to talk more of the purpose of the Names project and how it brings the people who battled AIDS  to  light.)

b.

Section 3:

a.

b.

Conclusion Still In thought

I want the conclusion to lead to a possibility of more ideas on how discrimination can effect the victims socially,mentally, and or physically.

 

Unit 3 Preliminary outline

Working title: Dominating the discrimination & Negative Connotations of AIDS in Kenya

Thesis statement: Kenya, is a country within the african continent where  people,and the government,are relatively conservative with their beliefs and religion which creates a prominent view of different individuals.  A large demographic of Kenya is known to blame women, and those affiliated within the LGBTQ for the spread of HIV. From moral standards and conservative like views, these assumptions of who to blame are asserted into the Kenyan society. We can’t be blinded by the implemented values that clutch onto the society of Kenya, It is the people’s job to be well aware of how aids is contracted, and the treatment of those who fight this infamous disease.

Introduction:

There have been several cases of domesticated abuse across Kenya on the LGBTQ community, Being affiliated with the sexual identifications inclined within the LGBTQ community imprisons individuals for up to fourteen years. Being homosexual is considered a taboo, which is why a stigma is created built from the correlation of gays to the cause of HIV/AIDS. There is a stigma around Kenyan women inflicting their own misfortune of contracting HIV, however these assumptions aren’t true, It is more then likely that HIV in women had been contacted from sexual abuse. Most people outside of Kenya aren’t aware of unsanitary conditions in hospitals which causes a liability of children being more inclined to be infected by the disease, which I see as another stigma or presumption asserted into peoples thoughts outside of Africa’s geography.

From the NAMES project I was able to learn of individuals who had been taken away from HIV/AIDS, I saw it as an icebreaker towards obtuse connotations that are faced against  carriers of AIDS. The quilt offered a sense of resurrection to these individuals, they lived on through the panels for the world to see who they really were, not what the world had thought they would be.

My purpose is to understand what causes these assertions that are placed against the women, LGBTQ, and children of Kenya. I want to know what can fix these assertions that obstruct these people from living normal lives in their belittling society of HIV/AIDS victims.

Alongside these thoughts, my research is meant to show the importance of awareness placed around discrimination and stigma set in the world of Kenya, It’s more of an opportunity for myself to learn how to combat these things that are still a problem today. As a whole we must not shy away from the darkest corners of Kenyan, corruption must be addressed through the people to educate those who are unaware.

Make Something Project description

MAKING SOMETHING
-THE DRAGON RAIDER-
John Oduor

1. Me and my partner were given bubble wrap,an eraser, a dinosaur like toy figure, a pencil,tape, and pouch.

2. We decided to snap the stick in half and stick the ends of it on the dinosaur toy, We then drew a smily face on the eraser to make it appear more lively and added the button to make the eraser appear more human like.

3. After looking at the Eraser like humanoid we placed him upon the dinosaur toy strapped him on with tape placing both him and the dinosaur action figure on top of the pouch which became more of a raft, I  had then started getting a feeling of adventure when creating this imaginary thing.

4. When the teacher had asked us what objects had we not used we answered the pencil, she then told us we had the opportunity to ask those around us for items we then decided to also snap the pencil in half to make it look like a paddle which would be used on a raft.

Archives Activity

When researching through valid sources whether it is physical or non physical it gives us the benefit to go through different routes to our conclusion of what we’re to solve. Metadata is really important and is for the most part essentially  needed whether we’re dealing with archives,research, or for a variety of projects that may or may have needed metadata. Metadata is basically data which explains data through records and such. Metadata allows individuals to be lead to new discoveries that may have a significant correlation  to their project and or research assignment. The purpose of Metadata is to communicate information to the one who is producing research, this person would be the primary researcher and metadata allows him or her to collect substantive information that allows them to push an idea further along into what could be several other presumptions that help them uncover the mystery, or layering behind what they seek to discover. When we the primary researchers question our own sources it leads us to fixing and learning from past and present mistakes, we may discover why we perceive things differently on the contraire to the source when we have an initial bias, when we’re questioning our sources we can decide whether the information isn’t substantial or If it could be a way of opening our minds that in the ned would benefit us both ways. Metadata and questioning our sources allow us to expand our horizon to broaden our own sense of thought when it comes to quantitive research.

Williams, Gabrielle. Primary Source Description “Two”.  Post Script Reverie  Blog, October 8,2017. http://postscriptreverie.gsucreate.org/source-descriptions/primary-source-description-two-gabrielle-williams/

Gabrielle Williams details the material implemented into the panel she is researching.

Williams in a detailed analysis if her quilt, but she also backs it up with sources.

Williams explores the fragments of the panel leading to other sources such as music the one who is given tribute to listened to before passing.

Williams audience is those who have interest in discovering the pieces(artifacts)  put together representing those who passed from aids.

Williams research could be beneficial to give people a more in depth analysis of the ordinary people who had been victims to Aids.

Description and Response

The panel is centered around yellow colored material which I assume is cotton, the cloth resembles the color of Anthony felix name on the ribbon attached to felix the cat. The Panel includes fragments of Anthony’s life such as his university, a patch that may represent an achievement, and felix the cat which perhaps may be his favorite cartoon character considering the character was more on television at the time. The Film Camera I believe represents his aspirations to possibly become a cinematographer. I presume the teddy bear was apart of early adolescence earlier on in his life before adulthood. The Dog must have been a companion to him, a man’s best friend.There is also a patch with the christmas tree that may express his love for the christmas holiday.

I still  wonder what the Patch that has his university and ultimate written in it represents. I see that his nickname is tony short Anthony which I had never realized is a  shorter way of saying Anthony till now. The designer of the panel I believe used felix the cat, the teddy bear, and the dog to represent his playfulness and happiness all in one.  The film camera had though bubbles which had surrounded it, I see this as a way of interpreting what Anthony felix goals and prospects were which may have included a career aspect in the film industry. Felix the cat may have been implemented into the panel just because of the last name and the character may manifest what Anthony felix personality may have been.

 

 

 

Reading The Object, Reading the Owner

 The Object is a white rounded device attached to a  wire plated in a tube, The wire has two separate white “pods” attached at the ends of the wire. One pod has a capitalized R, while the other pod has a capitalized L. There are some open spots on the Pod which are black, i believe this electronic device’s purpose is to be attached to another sort of electric appliance. In between one wire attached to the pods it has a positive and negative sign, and a mic symbol engraved onto the back of it, while holding this part i can hold a button down which is strange considering the fact that I don’t understand what it is for.

The Interrogation

Aids Quilt Introduction

The purpose of the aids quilt is to shed light on the lack of treatment of the incurable disease known as Aids. The quilt is a memorial and a way of celebrating the lives of those who were victims of Aids. The Quilt is a large rug with pieces of materials that describe who the person was during their lives. Aids is a global disease that causes death and allows corporate business leach off of the harm it causes to make higher profit,When individuals suffer from a disease such as Aids corporate business have a higher incentive in products related to treatment of Hiv/Aids. The Aids quilt allows people to be aware of the Hiv/aids epidemics and what type of people it effects, people who are just the same as ourselves.
