The intersection of Race, Technology, and Social Justice has become an increasingly important and critical area of study and discussion. This guide provides access points to critical literature, policy, and other resources that illuminate these themes. In this guide you will find interdisciplinary voices that all critically engage with the problems we all create and encounter when we assume that technology is neutral.
A Short Introduction to Race, Technology, and Ruha Benjamin
"The UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry (C2i2) is an interdisciplinary research center committed to reimagining technology, championing racial and economic justice in the tech sector, and strengthening democracy through culture-making and public policy work. C2i2 is also home to the Minderoo Initiative on Technology and Power, an initiative that investigates the social impact of digital technologies on the broader public good."
Sponsored by Princeton University, "the IDA B. WELLS Just Data Lab brings together students, educators, activists, and artists to develop a critical and creative approach to data conception, production, and circulation. Our aim is to rethink and retool data for justice."
