RePlacing Citizenship by Michael P. Brown

Book Description

This text uses an ethnographic study of one gay community's responses to AIDS to illustrate a radical democratic understanding of citizenship in contemporary society. Analysing specific forms of AIDS organizing and activism in Vancouver, British Columbia - from ACT UP to visiting buddy programmes - Brown explores the alternative spaces of political action that have formed in locations where state, civil society and family overlap. Instead of the traditional view of citizenship as a formal unchanging relationship between individual and state, he proposes that citizenship is more productively discerned in everyday acts and in the actual places we live our lives. Contributing to queer theory and theories of radical democracy, this book claims to bring abstract concepts down to earth with its nuanced portrait of the survival strategies of a community under siege.
