We’re delighted to share GSEJ’s external member, Clarissa Reche’s thought-provoking piece, Setting Traps: For an Insurgent and Joyful Science, published in Platypus, the official blog of the Committee for the Anthropology of Science, Technology, and Computing of the American Anthropological Association.

The article outlines of a proposal for a feminist and decolonial strategy to be and remain working and producing techno-scientific knowledge within academic institutions. It explores the concept of traps as a metaphorical strategy for marginalized researchers to navigate academic environments, protect their identities, and challenge existing power structures while producing knowledge aligned with their values and goals.
