This National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded workshop ran just prior to the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S). It sought to explore the question “What are the boundaries of Science and Technology in Africa and how should we recognize and address both the uniqueness of African knowledge production and innovation on the one hand, and the potential that STS work in Africa has to offer to the field as a whole on the other?”
The workshop was an intimate gathering of over 24 participants.
