Abstract

In this interview Professor Ana Viseu, one of Portugal’s most important science and technology studies scholars, discusses her fascinating professional and personal trajectory in the country and abroad, offering an original and innovative perspective on what it means to do science. In addition to being a model for new generations of scientists, in this interview with Renata Frade, Ana Viseu examines aspects related to her interdisciplinary work and ample experience in scientific projects, publications and teaching, and how these relate to issues such as diversity, inclusion and, challenges and achievements to women in science and technology. In this interview, Prof. Viseu engages with concepts central to her work such as, feminist technoscience, actor-network theory, cyborg anthropology and care so as to show how these can be used to better understand technoscientific innovation and particularly, how emergent information and communication technologies are envisioned, used and regulated and how they transform and create new realities, entities and worlds.
