Ellen Blommaert’s PhD thesis is rooted in the daily life worlds of young people between the ages of 16 and 25 in a rural area of western Kenya called Winam. It seeks to draw attention to young people’s hopes, aspirations and expectations, and shows how these young people creatively construct their daily lives in a context where HIV/AIDS has taken a toll on human lives and livelihoods. Blommaert hereby examines these young people form sexual relationships and networks, avoid the health risks associated with sex, and understand the links between sex, love and money.
