Journal Tapuya : Latin American Science, Technology and Society

Aim & Scope

Tapuya: Latin American Science, Technology and Society is an international open access journal seeking to enable a network of STS-informed conversations within Latin America, between Latin America and Euro-American cultures, and across global peripheries. It seeks to increase the complexity of the STS scholarly landscape by pushing conventional STS boundaries to include issues, perspectives and methods relevant to Latin America. Tapuya thus intends to contribute to earlier efforts to parochialize Euro-American STS and thus truly internationalize STS through the journal’s attention to distinctively Latin American critical discussions and productive tensions, both scholarly and political. Tapuya seeks to explore not only the diversity and richness of Latin American STS issues, perspectives and research methods and evidence of the many creative flows of influence that exist between Latin America, Euro-American cultures, and other peripheries, but also resources for STS periphery studies. The journal’s title "Tapuya" derives from the Quechua word “tapuy” which means “to question", and more broadly refers to knowledge-making as a questioning process. “Tapuy” is also a word that names the non-native way that the 16th Century colonizers spoke Quechua. Finally, today's anti-colonial theorists have called on the purported identity of this group as cannibals to articulate their own practice of "swallowing" Northern practices and transforming them into something distinctively Latin American. "Tapuya", therefore, has relevance as a title on a number of levels. [1]
