The article gives an account of the 'AIDS in Context' conference held at the University of the Witwatersrand in April 2001. It adopts a postmodern approach that concentrates on fragmented narratives and the construction of knowledge through competing discourses. It gives a critical ""who's who"" of the conference which shows that a diverse spectrum of qualified people (mainly activists) participated, who took their motivation from very different backgrounds.
