In Solidarity

June 15th, 2020  |  Published in Latest news

The Center for Science, Technology Medicine and Society (CSTMS) stands in solidarity with the peaceful Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of the brutal killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Steven Taylor, Tony McDade, David McAtee, and George Floyd. CSTMS remains firmly committed to centering the voices of Black scholars in Science and Technology Studies and furthering critical scholarship and dialogue on systemic racism in science, technology and medicine (STEM) being undertaken by our faculty and research affiliates, graduate students and alumni.  Recent symposia co-sponsored and hosted by CSTMS were attentive to algorithmic bias that exacerbates anti-Black racism as well as the racial injustice and uneven knowledge that resulted from the Human Genome Project. Our alumni and graduate students have made scholarly contributions on the subjects of Black Geographies and the impact of twenty-first century racism on the African diaspora. CSTMS has compiled a brief list of local organizations to support as well as recommended readings from Science & Technology Studies scholars and History of Science organizations.
