Catalyst Special Issue: Theme: Black Studies & Feminist Technoscience

Editors: Cristina Visperas, Kimberly Juanita Brown, and Jared Sexton

Theme: Black Studies & Feminist Technoscience

Vol 2, No 2 (2016)

Service: Editing

This special feature of Catalyst resituates specific themes, topics, objects, sources, and methods in science and technology studies (STS) within the vast interdisciplinary scholarship on Blackness and anti-Blackness.

In many ways, it follows from a large body of work in STS that has charted and critiqued the troubled making of Blackness as a biological, medical, legal, and social category apart from “the human.”

"Previously, the managing editor and editorial board members of Catalyst copyedited the manuscripts in our journal. It was time-consuming and we were very excited to work with Ideas on Fire, which was recommended by a board member. Working with the group was straightforward and hassle-free. We are extremely happy with the results of our joint effort and look forward to working with Ideas on Fire on future issues."
