Dear user, a new article has been published in our open access journal Tapuya: Latin American Science, Technology and Society.
Conocimientos, sociedades y tecnologías en América Latina: Viejos modelos y desencantos, nuevos horizontes y desafíos.
By Luciano Levin
During the text, Levin mentioned the following…
The book I am reviewing is probably the product of the last face-to-face meeting among senior researchers in the STS field in Latin America – together with some European colleagues – that took place before the pandemic. This was in Bogotá, where Hebe Vessuri was invited as visiting professor at the Universidad de Los Andes. This is not a minor fact: Although most of the texts that compose the book were written in the subsequent isolation, the problems that arose with the pandemic were still very new or had not been expressed. Various controversies about care, prevention, treatment and policy issues, very complex aspects of public communication of science and technology, geopolitical questions about the development, distribution, use and acceptance of vaccines are just some of the many changes that have taken place since then, deepening, in most cases, the problems outlined in the various texts.
