CALL FOR PAPERS for "Technology, Cultural Interchange and Globalization," the 29th Symposium of ICOHTEC - The International Committee for the History of Technology, June 22-26, 2002, Granada, Spain.
ICOHTEC is an international scholarly organization associated with the International Union for the History and Philosophy of Science and UNESCO. ICOHTEC's aim is to foster cooperation in the history of technology among scholars from all parts of the world, and to that end holds an annual symposium and publishes the annual journal ICON.
The ICOHTEC Program Committee welcomes proposals for individual PAPERS and SESSIONS (3 or more papers) for its 29th Symposium in Granada, Spain, June 22-26, 2002. In recognition of the unique place that Granada holds in the history of the Mediterranean, we have chosen the general theme of "Technology, Cultural Interchange and Globalization" for the Symposium. ICOHTEC invites members as well as non-members to organize sessions for the Granada Symposium or to offer individual papers.
The Program Committee especially encourages proposals dealing with the history of technology within this general theme. But, as is common with ICOHTEC Symposia, papers and sessions on other themes of interest to the history of technology also are welcomed. Proposals must conform to the length limitations listed below (references, tables, etc. may be appended).
PAPERS: Submit 500-word abstract and a one-page c.v.
SESSIONS and SYMPOSIA: Submit an abstract (250 words) describing the session or symposium as a whole, an abstract (500 words each) from each of the participants, and a one-page c.v. for each participant and for the session chairperson.
ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY January 15, 2002. Please submit abstracts and c.v.'s by email. If you cannot submit your proposal electronically, you may submit four copies by regular mail postmarked not later than January 10, 2002.
