STS 200N: Funkentelechy: Technologies, Social Justice and Black Vernacular Cultures

From texts to techne, from artifacts to discourses on science and technology, this course is an examination of how Black people in this society have engaged with the mutually consitutive relationships that endure between humans and technologies.
