“In Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, Safiya Umoja Noble brings together Black feminist studies, library and information sciences (LIS), and media studies to carve out the field of Black feminist technology studies (BFTS). Begun as a follow-up to Andre Brock’s challenge to see what happens when you type “black girls …” on a Google search in 2011, Noble pursues the study of this most influential search engine. What she finds are tremendous continuities with previous deployments of information and media technologies and a few, mostly dystopian, ruptures that threaten our democracy and our ability to access information.”
