In Bulletin No. 44, Laura Moutinho (USP) reports on the developments in the American academic environment of the Black Lives Matter movement, through the hashtags created by STEM, an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, which paralyzed the academic publishing market in June 2020. The author points out that the racial discussion in the scientific environment repositions science as an entity capable of impacting on the debates held in society, producing new subjectivities; and reinforces the importance of the intersectionality of racial debate to gender issues, since there is in the academic environment the under-representation of women, especially non-white women.
