STS as a language for new forms of interdisciplinarity

Kaleidos – Center for Interdisciplinary Ethnography articulates efforts between the University of Cuenca and FLACSO-Ecuador to promote interinstitutional and interdisciplinary collaborations. Created on April 5, 2018, this ethnography-centered research space in the global south aims to bring together scientists and ethnographers to build bridges across disciplines through research-driven discussions around urgent worldly issues. This means: producing research that informs local problems through socially engaged mechanisms, and combining a multidisciplinary perspective to the development of innovative solutions to global challenges. In this sense, Kaleidos produces academic research with local relevance but with an international scope.
