Tech Justice LabTech Justice Lab

The Tech Justice Lab, housed in the John Martinson Honors College at Purdue, is a cross-college collaboration that prioritizes the development of interdisciplinary, justice-oriented undergraduate technology researchers and practitioners. The TJL builds on the John Martinson Honors College’s mission of fostering well-rounded and highly engaged students, equipped with the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to impact society for the better. Interested students from any discipline, with guidance from TJL affiliated faculty and peers, will develop their toolkits of critical frameworks for evaluating the ethics and social impacts of technology. The TJL seeks to empower students to carry out projects that help us imagine what it means for technology to be “just,” and to envision ways to change how technologies are designed, implemented, evaluated, and/or contested, in order to bring about a more just future.

Purdue Libraries' collection of primary source materials on the history and development of powered flight began in 1940 with the gift of aviator Amelia Earhart's papers by her husband, George Palmer Putnam. Since that initial donation, the number of flight-related archival collections has increased to reflect the steady growth of faculty and alumni contributions to the development of flight and later, space exploration. The Barron Hilton Flight and Space Exploration Archives was established in 2011 with generous support provided by Barron Hilton and the Conrad Hilton Foundation and now includes the papers of engineers, aviation professionals, scholars, and astronauts including Purdue distinguished alumni such as Neil A. Armstrong and Eugene Cernan.
