This essay sketches some of the broader sociopolitical and academic conditions of possibility at the time of the founding of the SKAT Section of the American sociological Association, noting the diversity of concerned groups and the affordances of epistemological diversity. I situate my own development as an early STS scholar, and discuss the growing salience of (post)colonial STS and concerns regarding current STS training and publishing.
