Ecuadorian STS. A Story from the Middle of the World

Funding Agency

Start and End Date

06/07/2019

Description

Academic communities often emerge from the collisions of scholarly interests, the building of new research programs, and opportunities for collaboration. The Ecuadorian community of researchers on Science, Technology, and Society (STS) studies is one of those cases. This exhibit recreates the story of all the associations of human and non-human actors which co-created the STS network in Ecuador. We follow their traces and co-produce a narrative to show how different STS scholars came along in constant dialogue and institutionally stabilized their trajectories. The route includes traveling from the Equatorial line throughout the country in order to uncover the different locations of the Andes where STS studies are rooting as a new field and building academic communities. Visualization techniques, podcasts, and text are used to reveal the Ecuadorian STS debates, challenges, and practices.
