dc.description.abstract This chapter identifies an emerging cluster of work that brings together the intersecting concerns of science and technology studies (STS), feminist STS, and postcolonial STS. We begin by identifying a few of the central themes in each field and then introduce an emerging cluster of scholarship that works across all three. We then discuss three recent themes that highlight the key issues for STS: (1) critiques of colonial science and its hierarchies of gender/race/class, (2) Latin American decolonial theory and its feminist insights, and (3) how indigenous peoples' knowledge challenges all three of the above mentioned fields. We end with some reflections for the future of STS by arguing for more scholarly work that engages with all three of these intersecting fields. We believe that this is important for the field of STS because a singular focus on gender, race, coloniality, or indigeneity alone leaves numerous gaps in our understanding of the co-constitution of science and society. en
