ZEVALLOS CASTANEDA, María Mercedes. Voices and bodies: radio consulting as an arena for discourse in Peru. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 1999, vol.3, n.4, pp.75-92. ISSN 1807-5762.

The radio consulting room is a virtual location for the meeting of doctor and patient. This being the case, what is revealed in it (the body) becomes a field reconstructed by the assorted lines of discourse voiced as from the position that one occupies in this virtual arena: that of the doctor or that of the patient. In this paper, we describe the various discourse strategies used in the construction of the body in time and in space, as well as the construction of multiple bodies within the arena of airwaves. Two key aspects are broached: the process of making intimate issues public as one of the characteristics of current society, and the consulting room as an arena where discourses concerning the body, from varied sources, meet and blend together, combine or oppose one another and reveal themselves as divergent.

Palabras clave : radio; doctor/patient relationship.
