The Asia-Pacific STS Network: Bridging North, South, East, and West
In the previous EASST Review (Volume 31(2) June 2012: 1), Harro van Lente wrote about STS research and teaching in EASST being dominated by a Northern membership. An article in that issue introduced a focus on STS outside Europe, reporting on the ESOCITE emergence and experience of STS in South America. Here, I report on the Asia-Pacific Science, Technology and Society Network (APSTSN), which bridges northern and southern and western and eastern divides/perspectives dependent on geopolitics and international relations/political economy understandings, as well as geographical spatial understandings.
