Establishing Africa's Place in the Global Science and Technology Studies (STS) Conversation

Fall 2017 Grant Recipient


Toluwalogo Odumosu (Engineering and Society) Workshop: STS Africa is a workshop that will highlight and address the structural challenges faced by STS scholars and their scholarship from, on, and about the continent of Africa. The conference will contribute to increasing knowledge in the field by bringing together the disparate communities of scholarship on African STS, integrating insights from studying Biomedicine, the Environment and Information and Communication Technologies. By increasing participation of uniquely African perspectives in the creation of STS knowledge about the continent, the workshop will deepen our insights on various processes of science, technology and innovation on the African continent.
