Postcolonial Science Studies

FAKKIR.XYZ | JURNAL – During the past 20 years, postcolonial approaches have emerged to explain the distribution and local adaptation of science, technology, and medicine around the world. Such studies contest European and North American hegemony in science, situating and thereby dismantling global or universal claims. Critical postcolonial analysis should be distinguished from anodyne talk of ‘global flows’ and from actor-network theory, which avoids discussion of power differences and structural inequalities. This article explains the origins of postcolonial science studies, describes their various forms and functions, and suggests future elaboration of this sort of critique.
