Concentricity and eccentricity: Academic trajectories of CTS networks in Chile and Argentina

Text

This research is a qualitative study that seeks to understand the co-production processes of peripheral CTS networks and academic careers of social scientists in Chile and Argentina. Through a narrative analysis of their careers, we investigate the perceptions of their interests, expectations, and their interplay with their disciplinary fields of interest.The results show the importance of the formation of identities, the construction of shared knowledge, as well as the relevance of interdisciplinary work, in competitive academic contexts that demand efficiency in the production of knowledge, among others.
