‘Seeking Dorothy: In the Land of Oz’ – Colette F. Keen (PhD Creative Writing)

With a working title of Seeking Dorothy: In the Land of OZ, this research will create a picture of the changing attitudes in society during the first seven years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Sydney, Australia. A Verbatim play and an accompanying critical commentary are the anticipated final products of this research. Both will reflect an analysis of the formation of public opinion through the political, media and medical responses to the epidemic and contrasting these responses with newly recorded oral histories of the QLBTIQA (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Ally) community.
