Angela Okune on the future directions of STS in Africa


Angela Okune (June 6, 2018): I think that future research related to science and technology in/from/on Africa should look at research infrastructures, that is, the technical, legal, political, economic and social infrastructures that have been and are being established to produce knowledge. I think there is great possibility and also great risk in the "open science" rhetoric and I think STS scholars should be working in and on that as well.
