Modeling of the generation and dissemination of knowledge

This area aims to understand the complexity of processes of generation and dissemination of knowledge, through multiple epistemological perspectives and development of theoretical-methodological contributions, constructing models of interpretation, analysis and explanation of these processes and their impacts on society. Although the title of the doctorate explains "dissemination of knowledge", the studies that have been developed by the groups and researchers working with this object have raised elements for the argument that in the diffusion processes are embedded those of Generation of knowledge. Without understanding how scientific, technological and other communities produce and share knowledge, studies on translation, transference, (re)appropriation, transformation, (re)construction of knowledge that are intends to disseminate.
