Call for Papers: Science, Technology and Society in Africa
Call for Papers Date:
postamble is a post-graduate student journal based in the Centre for African Studies at the University of Cape Town. For a special issue of the journal (Vol. 4.1), we invite papers, photographic essays, or book reviews with a focus on the theme of Science, Technology and Society in Africa.
The guiding questions for this issue are: How do people make sense of new technologies and scientific practices as they impinge on their lives, and their understandings of the
world in which they live? In what ways are technologies from “elsewhere” – the West, the global North – hybridised and transformed as they travel to African contexts and the
continents different regional and national traditions? In what ways do new technologies and scientifi c practices and languages provide materials for reworking notions of culture,
identity and the self in particular, local African contexts?
Submissions should be correctly formatted and posted or e-mailed to the Managing Editor by 31 December 2007.
