Contrary to the assertions of some authors from developed countries, whoargue that post-colonial analyses in social studies on science are a recentphenomenon, we aim to show the diversity of studies in Latin America and howvarious theoretical-methodological references have been approached in theregion, their uses and limitations. Given the time constraint, we decided thatfour colleagues from different countries would make brief presentationsdiscussing this new attention to STS in peripheral contexts, while Lea Velhoand Hebe Vessuri acted as chair and discussant of the session. As a set, webelieve that the ideas presented contributed to enrich and refine thehistorical views of the Latin American STS field, taking into account itscontextual, political, institutional cultural and cognitive dimensions. Weinclude here all six views, with the promise of having full papers in thefuture.
