This is a non-exhaustive compilation of readings by Black, Indigenous, mixed race, and scholars, artists, and activists of colour and trans and queer scholars on intersectional feminisms, technology, performance, design, and digital humanities. The list is always in progress, just like all our anti-racist work should be. We welcome and encourage any suggestions to this list.
