Updated: November 21 2017Tapuya, the new Latin American Science, Technology and Society journal, has a number of call for papers open on different topics. I would like to draw your attention to the special issue I´m co-editing with Claudia Magallanes Blanco on Indigenous Knowledges and Technologies. Please find further information on submission at the link.
And this is the special issue description: Indigenous Knowledges and Technologies Editors: Tiago Ribeiro Duarte, Universidade de Brasília, Brazil Claudia Magallanes-Blanco, Universidad Iberomericana-Puebla, Mexico Indigenous knowledges and technologies continue to be a marginal topic in STS. Yet there has been an array of approaches to such phenomena from such other fields as media studies, visual anthropology, telecommunications, and human rights. STS appears to still be in the process of decolonization insofar as it continues to ignore knowledges, technologies, and epistemologies treated by Europeans as irrelevant to knowledge production. This cluster welcomes submissions on indigenous knowledges and technology appropriation, biopiracy, and/or technological policy making, indigenous uses and developments of information and communication technologies, decolonial and postcolonial indigenous STS, and clashes between indigenous and modern ontologies.
