Summary
AIDS and the Sexuality of Law maps the relationship between sexuality and the law and science of AIDS as it evolved between 1985 and 1995. The book undertakes a close reading of case opinions from the federal appellate courts and argues that these scripts can be read productively through the interpretive lens of irony. Although these texts rely literally on the language of science to construct an appearance of managing HIV transmission risks, they depend figuratively on a sexual epistemology that relegates important fragments of information to the realm of the unknowable. Court cases examined in the book deal with adult businesses, the health care industry, and prisons
