Encadenando a un monstruo: la producción de representaciones en un campo impuro

Main Article Content

Michael Lynch Ruth McNally

Resumen

En este documento se aborda el tema de la representación desde la perspectiva
etnometodológica y desde la sociología del conocimiento científico. En un primer punto, se discute la imagen estándar de la representación y la propuesta constructivista de dicha imagen. Después se presenta un estudio de caso en el que se sugiere cómo las prácticas de recolección y análisis de la evidencia forense pueden contribuir al entendimiento de la adecuación representativa. El objeto de este trabajo apunta a pensar de modo distinto la representación, considerando cómo ésta es producida, manejada y deconstruida. Desde esta visión, la propuesta consiste en pensar a la representación no sólo como un concepto epistemológico problemático,
sino también como una realización de culturas epistémicas específicas.
