In 2020, in response to the Movement for Black Lives and a widespread acknowledgement that “doing the history of technology” needs new approaches, a volunteer group of SHOT members compiled a list of books, articles, and other sources in history of technology and related fields that are anti-racist, anti-colonial, and inclusive in sentiment. This was conceived as a living document.
In 2022-23, SHOT’s REDI committee partnered with the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Toronto to build on this first version. The result, compiled by IHPST’s Justine Adetola Ajao, offers an expanded list with annotations including paper abstracts and review excerpts. Please check it out!
