Regional Meeting: “New emancipatory knowledge of the south: One hundred years after the reform of Cordova and the fifty years of May 1968”

 

In 2018 two events of special relevance to the debate on science and technology in the region will take place: on one hand, one hundred years of the university movements that result in the “Cordova Manifesto”, and fifty of the social movements of May 1968; and, on the other hand, UNESCO has called the Third Regional Conference on Higher Education (CRES 2018). In this context, an open forum has been proposed to address the Cordova University Reform of 1918 and the fiftieth anniversary of May 1968, to be held on 15, 16 and 17 November 2017. The invitation is available to all those interested in getting involved and contributing to the construction of this agenda, both from the academic and scientific fields as well as from social and political movements. You can participate sending us your paper according to the publication rules.

Background

Science and technology have become major drivers for a new knowledge-intensive development pattern. This new pattern represents opportunities, but also challenges for Latin American countries. On one hand, it opens the possibility to recover and produce knowledge to promote alternative forms of well-being and coexistence; on the other hand, the trend to concentrare knowledge introduces new inequalities and an increasingly wide cognitive gap between those who can access and dispose of innovations and those who do not.

In 2018 two events of special relevance to the debate on science and technology in the region coincide: on one hand, one hundred years of the university movements that resulted in the Manifesto of Cordoba, and fifty of the social movements of May 1968; And, on the other hand, UNESCO has called the Third Regional Conference on Higher Education (CRES 2018). In this context, it is proposed an open forum at the Regional Meeting "New emancipatory knowledge from the South: rethinking the centennial of the University Reform of Cordoba and the fiftieth anniversary of May 1968, to be held on 15, 16 and 17 Of November 2017.

This meeting will be a space for debate and exchange of experiences and knowledge about what happens in science and technology in the region and what is projected as an agenda for Latin America and the Caribbean countries, as a power region of knowledge.

 

Thematic lines

The papers summited will be considered as an input for the debate in the event and for the construction of the programmatic agenda. After the peer review process, the best articles will be proposed for published with UNESCO's sponsorship. For the presentation of articles the following thematic lines are proposed in order to guide the debate:

  1. The crisis of civilization and the role of knowledge / information in the global context: the tragedy of the commons and anti-commons in scientific production, technological and productive innovation.
  2. Particularities of capitalist accumulation in the region and the strategic role of STI (scale, plural economies, primary-exporter, secondary-importer, etc.).
  3. University autonomy and knowledge at 100-year of Cordoba: what science, what technology and what innovation do we need for a new global social contract of independent knowledge?
  4. The geopolitics of knowledge seen from the South: cognitive, technological and epistemological dependence. From importing styles to brain drain.
  5. New forms of knowledge management and intellectual property for a stronger democracy.

Aproach

The purpose is to disseminate and exchange empirical evidence and innovative theories about science and technology that are developed in the region, with interest in social application and prospective orientation to reduce the cognitive / technological dependency. In this sense, empirical and conceptual papers that focus mainly, but not exclusively, on the following aspects are supported:

  1. Methodological innovations in the measurement of advances in science and technology in the region.

  2. Case studies of strategies to build capacity in science and technology in the region.

  3. The integration of science and technology and its effects on productivity in the region.

  4. The position of regional economies in the socio-global chains of knowledge.

  5. The role of science, technology and innovation in the new global geopolitics.

  6. Proposal and analysis of public policies in the field of science, technology and innovation.

  7. Social and productive technologies for global sustainability.
