Congresso Internacional de História da Ciência e Tecnologia
A XXV Edição do Congresso de História da Ciência e tecnologia aconteceu no Campus da Praia Vermelha da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), entre os dias 23 e 29 de julho de 2017, com o tema "Ciência, Tecnologia e Medicina entre o Global e o Local".
Questions of place are gaining increasing importance in the work of historians of science, technology and medicine, to such an extent that some scholars suggest this corresponds to a veritable "spatial turn". It is unavoidable that researchers take sides on issues such as the situatedness of knowledge and practices, the problems pertaining to their movements across spaces and cultures (and not only along time) and, above all, the proper choice of scales of analysis – all the way between the global and the local, which is the core of the 25th ICHST’s theme. At the same time, this theme relates to the very nature of the Congress as the largest international gathering of historians of science, technology and medicine, inviting all of us to think about what we may say to and learn from each other, considering our own multifarious places and standpoints.
