Persson, A., & Newman, C. (2008). Making monsters: Heterosexuality, crime and race in recent Western media coverage of HIV. Sociology of Health & Illness, 30(4), 632-646.

This is a really interesting article about the construction of monsters in public and social life. It talks about the recent construction of HIV and AIDS in terms of innocence and guilt, except this time in a heterosexual context, and in a Western country. The article discusses the conflation of criminality and black sexuality and the production of a monstrous masculinity that recalls and reflects historical and contemporary racial tensions.
