The Society for the History of Technology will hold its next annual meeting in Toronto, CANADA, October 17-20, 2002. The program committee invites proposals for individual papers and sessions on topics related to all aspects of the history of technology. Proposals that deal with regional or national comparative aspects of the history of technology and the cultural dimensions in technology transfers are encouraged.
Proposals for individual papers must include:
a one page abstract, and
a one-page curriculum vitae, including current postal and e mail addresses.
Proposals for complete sessions must include:
a description of the session’s theme;
a list of the presenters’ names and paper titles;
a one page abstract and one page c.v. for each of the presenters;
a one page c.v. for the commentator, chairperson, and session organizer, if she or he is not participating in the session.
The session description should clarify how individual papers contribute to the session’s overall theme.
Applicants may chose either one of these submission methods:
Send a paper copy of the complete proposal bearing a postmark or equivalent indication of submission date by Friday March 22, 2002 to: Karin Zachmann at the address below.
By the same date, send one single e mail message to the email below, with electronic copies of all elements of the complete proposal as attachments, , b formatted in Microsoft Word (any version of Word up to MS Word 2000 is fine, but the proposal must be a *.doc file). Whether submitting an individual paper or a complete panel, the program committee will prefer to receive separate attachments for each item (vitae, paper, and so on).
The choice of submission methods will not affect the program committee’s selection process in any way. Once the program is fixed, the committee hopes to have made arrangements to make the accepted abstracts available on the SHOT homepage.
