This roundtable will discuss emerging forms of expertise among patients and non-dominant medical voices in various settings across late twentieth century. Drawing from a wealth of archival research, oral histories and ethnographic sources, this expert panel sheds light on how criticisms of medicalization led to the rise of alternative cultures of biomedical orthodoxy within the context of the developments of new market and technologies. Focusing on pregnancy, childbirth and HIV AIDS , these presentations look at the increasing participation of patients and peripheral medical ‘experts’, guided by their own experience, as co-agents and sometimes opponents in the creation of medical knowledge.
