Bibliography for Doing AntiRacist History of Technology

In recognition of the Movement for Black Lives and a widespread acknowledgement that revisions have been sorely needed to the Doing History of Technology section of the SHOT website, a volunteer group of SHOT members convened to redress the issue by compiling this list of books, articles, and other sources in history of technology and related fields that are anti-racist, anti-colonial, and inclusive in sentiment. We did so by soliciting recommendations for a revised list of Classics to replace bibliographies listed on the SHOT website. In retaining the word “classic,” we aim to problematize the perceived neutrality of the term.

This effort is a work in progress and will be updated and re-organized periodically. To contribute additional sources, or contact the organizers of this page, use this form.
