Lemon and Medina analyze how two different academic communities, Latin American studies and the history of technology, have approached the telling of Latin American history of technology, based on a review of the English-language literature on the history of technology in Latin America in two of the top journals from the history of technology and three of the top journals on Latin America. Through an analysis of number of articles published, they identify important differences in how each community addresses the topic of technology, and the authors highlight what has been made visible and invisible in each field. They conclude by suggesting ways to broaden how scholars in these fields write technology history in the Latin American context.
