Nanotechnology, Governance, and Knowledge Networks in the Global South

Autoren: Estrada, Marcela Suárez

  • Attempts to go beyond taking a neutral focus on knowledge networks by proposing a new perspective to analyze them as being dynamic
  • Highlights the agency and dynamic capacity of non-state actors and the ways in which they affect networks
  • Analyzes the different sources of power shaping nanotechnology, reveals the tensions and asymmetries in transnational nanotechnology networks, and presents evidence of shifting power in nanotechnology networks

Über dieses Buch

The seemingly unlimited technological potential of nanotechnology brings with it new practices of governance, networking, and exercising power and agency. Focusing on scholars in the Global South, this text covers nanotechnology discourses, imaginaries, and materialities as they circulate and interact within governance knowledge networks. Rather than adapt their actions to existing governance mechanisms and science, technology, and innovation policy, scientists use the imaginary of nanotechnology to create new symbolic and material incentives, thus shaping its governance. By tracing the constantly shifting asymmetries of knowledge and power, the book offers fresh insights into the dynamics of knowledge networks.

Marcela Suárez Estrada is a research fellow and lecturer at the Lateinamerika-Institut at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. 

Stimmen zum Buch

“This is a great new take on knowledge networks: that they are not floating freely in the air, but are situated in space, full of asymmetric power relations, blocking and excluding as much as sustaining the making of knowledge. Yet they are not structurally fixed, instead representing the dynamic outcome of constant negotiation and contestation. After this book, knowledge networks will no longer be the same!” (Jan-Peter Voß, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany)

“This book makes a welcome contribution to STS scholarship by analyzing the dynamics of knowledge networks of nanotechnology from the perspective of the Global South. It persuasively proposes a new stage in the analysis of networks of governance—conceiving them as complex phenomena in terms of the asymmetries, representations, and discourses in constant motion in the exercising of power by scientists.” (Hebe Vessuri, Principal Researcher at the IPCSH, CONICET, Argentina)
