"Africa" in Science, Technology, & Human Values

As of May 15, 2018, 177 results emerge from a quick search of “Africa” in the 4S journal "Science, Technology and Human Values". Of these, 120 are research articles. Most of these keyword "hits" were as a result of the mention of "African Americans" within the papers. It is also notable that the works explicitly focused on African contexts in "Science, Technology & Human Values" have primarily been published since 2000. Such work has largely focused on topics related to health, social and economic development, technology, and the biopolitics of race.

This PECE essay helps to answer the STS Across Borders analytic question: “What topics have been prominent in this STS formation in different periods?”

This essay is part of an essay on events that have helped to bring the "STS in Africa" formation together, which is part of a broader exhibit on "STS in Africa."

This essay is also part of an exhibit on Science, Technology, & Human Values (ST&HV).
