Crip Technoscience Issue

Catalyst has published a special CRIP TECHNOSCIENCE issue, a must read for Tech&Dis-interested folks. I’ve been waiting for the Fritsch-Hamraie “Crip Technoscience Manifesto” to come out for over a year.

I might also draw your attention to a book review of Bodyminds Reimagined by Sami Schalk, written by STS PhD Candidate Joshua Earle. (More work to come from him around the theme of CYBORG MAINTENANCE soon, will share when published.)

Also, I’d like to draw your attention to ALL the articles because wow, but it will be obnoxious if I try to. Here’s just a list, but you could also click here.
