Hebe Vessuri – International Social Science Council

Despite obvious progress, digital gaps persist internationally and within national boundaries. To what extent are we not being dependent on contexts that require of us to be digital or to be digitally present in certain environments? The Bernal Prize winner is Hebe Vessuri, an Argentinian anthropologist whose contributions to the field of Science and Technology Studies have been methodological, empirical, conceptual, and institutional. By open access we mean online research and knowledge outputs that are free of all restrictions on access e.

Our presentation will deal with questions such as: Vessuri is author and editor of 31 books, and hundreds of articles, book chapters and government reports, written in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. Business relationships as much as international civil society, now online, and academia all afford channels for the international mobility of generic hebd and means for the circulation of particular forms of knowledge and kinds of relations in state and society.

The situated character of knowledge has been particularly demanding for southern countries in their need to dominate the conditions of science implementation locally. It remains to fessuri seen how far this new trend will go to interrupt the processes already under way in the globalizing current. Click the following link for more details https: Her conception of national styles of science, peripheral science, and of the cultural role of science in less-developed countries have been particularly influential in Latin America, helping define STS in vessiri region.


The expansion and acceleration of global interconnectivity has had significant socioeconomic and ideational implications that served to reconfigure the international system.

Keynote Speaker

Her current research interests include today’s wave of internationalization of the social sciences, and the digital transition and its impact on the practice of scientific research in geographically isolated regions. Past winners have included many of the founders and prominent scholars who have devoted their careers to the understanding of the social dimensions of science and technology.

The metaphor of unity, together with the values of universality and certainty, has been largely replaced by metaphors of plurality and relationally in a complex world. A most recent turn of the helm in some of the world power centers, however, seems to be signalling a new change of direction, heading towards a recomposition of hrbe national space and proposing a new trend to isolationism.

But the new modalities of research hege in recent decades fostered the creation of international research networks, and a new wave of internationalization of higher education, research and culture, distilling the discourses of prevalent western policy directly or as spillovers in local systems. Vessuru the s globalization processes introduced substantial changes in the world framework of knowledge production. The literature on the social studies of science had emphasized that the generation of knowledge takes place in different localities and under particular circumstances.

Her analyses of the role of science in diverse societies speaks powerfully to issues at the heart of contemporary politics around the world.


Open access can be applied to all forms of published veswuri output, including peer-reviewed and non peer-reviewed academic journal articles, conference papersthesesbook chapters and monographs, and by extension, art collections, videos, photographs or the production of electronic books. The values of control, dominance and expertise have been redefined hebw values of dialogue, interaction and negotiation.

In what way does the material and cultural context of the web function as conditioning device for the mobility of knowledge objects? Access tolls and free of many restrictions on use e. A pioneer in the anthropology of vessurl with fieldwork experience throughout Latin America, Vessuri has demonstrated how ethnographic studies of the sciences can inform both social theory and policy.

The current descriptive narrative of knowledge shows it as a network with multiple nodes and connections, and as a dynamic system very different from the notion common a few decades ago as a basic or lineal structure of disciplinary rhetoric. In what sense is the recent activity of many knowledge institutions in vesauri global south a response to the new mechanisms of exclusion, that is to say, an attempt not vessurii be isolated for not belonging to special networks as they are currently configured?

What is called “open access” has been in the middle of it all. She has contributed to the emergence and consolidation of the field of social studies of science and technology in Latin America.
