Hebe Vessuri, the first Latin American researcher to receive the John Bernal Award

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. 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.

What is called “open access” has been in the middle of it all. The expansion and acceleration of global interconnectivity has had significant socioeconomic and ideational implications that served to reconfigure the international system. Vessuri is author and editor of 31 books, and hundreds of articles, book chapters and government reports, written in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

Our presentation will deal with questions such as: Despite obvious progress, digital gaps persist internationally and within national boundaries. A pioneer in the anthropology of science with fieldwork experience throughout Latin America, Vessuri has demonstrated how ethnographic studies of the sciences can inform both social theory and policy.

By open access we mean online research and knowledge outputs that are free of all restrictions on access e. In what sense is the recent activity of many knowledge institutions in the global south a response to the new mechanisms of exclusion, that is to say, an attempt not to be isolated for not belonging to special networks as they are currently configured?


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 the national space and proposing a new trend to isolationism.

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. 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?

In what way does the material and cultural context of the web function as conditioning device for the mobility vexsuri knowledge objects? 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 the region.

The situated character of knowledge has been particularly demanding for southern countries in their need to dominate the conditions of science implementation locally. Business relationships as much as international civil society, now online, and academia all afford channels for the international mobility of generic ideas and means for the circulation of particular forms hebd knowledge and kinds of relations in state and society.

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


She has contributed to the emergence and consolidation of the field of social studies of science and technology in Latin America. Access tolls and free of many restrictions on use e.

Since the s globalization processes introduced substantial changes in the world framework of knowledge production. The values of control, dominance and expertise have been redefined as values of dialogue, interaction and negotiation.

Open access can be applied to all forms of published research 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.

Her current research interests include today’s wave of internationalization of the social sciences, and the digital transition and its vessurii on the practice of vessurri research in geographically isolated regions.

It remains to be seen how far this new trend will heeb to interrupt the processes already under way in the globalizing current. The literature on the social studies of science had emphasized that the generation of knowledge takes place in different localities and under particular circumstances. But the new modalities of research internationalization in recent decades fostered the creation of international research networks, and a new vdssuri of internationalization of higher education, research and culture, distilling the discourses of prevalent western policy directly or as spillovers in local systems.
