Scientists increasingly attempt to tackle these problems through inter- and transdisciplinary collaborations where experts from different fields, both from within academia and from elsewhere, join forces. Critical scholarship on science&technology has been picking up on these issues for decades with decolonial, postcolonial, and global “turns” being regularly proclaimed in science and technology studies, anthropology of science, science education, science policy, and so on. A few decades ago, it would have been hard to imagine Helen Longino and Alison Wylie, two of the founding figures of feminist philosophy of science, shaping the future of the field as recent presidents of the Philosophy of Science Association. There are often-unacknowledged institutional and pragmatic barriers to having inter-South dialogues, and one cannot ignore the fact that that insularity and unreflexive adoption of Northern paradigms can also be negative, or at least very problematic, for the South in a global setting.
