conference_alteridades CTS Chile 2020

Santiago de Chile. January 15-17, 2020

Alteridad. Del latín alteritas, literalmente “cualidad de ser otro”, o estado de ser radicalmente ajeno al yo consciente o a una orientación cultural particular. Cualidad de no ser igual; ser distinto o diferente de lo que de otra manera se experimenta o conoce.
Para el Encuentro 2020 de la Red, llamamos a investigadoras e investigadores, profesionales, artistas y activistas a que presenten sus reflexiones para conversar, de manera abierta y plural, sobre las capacidades de intervención de los CTS a través de la apertura, visibilización y cuidado de otros mundos otras epistemologías, otras prácticas, otras relaciones. Invitamos particularmente a intervenciones creativas —instalaciones, performances, proyectos audiovisuales, etc.— que se salgan del molde usual de la presentación escrita. Ver llamado completo acá.

Porto Alegre. July 14-18, 2020

Challenges of the 21st Century:
Democracy, Environment, Inequalities, Intersectionality

It has now become clear that to face global challenges, democracy needs to be re-invented within and beyond the representative system. Continue reading

El avance de las ‘fake news’ como modo de gobierno. Violencia sistemática contra pueblos originarios y comunidades locales.

La pregunta crucial, como algunos y algunas han insistido, ya no es cómo los estudios CTS pueden investigar estos fenómenos, sino hasta qué punto pueden y deben intervenir en ellos. Continue reading
