Call For Papers:
SHOT 2013: 10-13 October
Portland, Maine

Deadline for submissions: 31 March 2013

The Society for the History of Technology will hold its annual meeting in Portland, Maine, 10–13 October. The Program Committee invites paper and session proposals on any topic in the history of technology, broadly defined. The Committee welcomes proposals for individual papers or sessions from researchers at all levels (including graduate students, chaired professors, and independent scholars). It welcomes proposals from those new to SHOT, regardless of discipline, as well as those familiar with the field. Applicants are encouraged to propose sessions that include a diverse mix of participants: multinational origins, a mix of men and women, a balance of professional ranks (i.e., mixing graduate students and junior scholars with senior scholars), etc. Strong preference will be given to panels whose presenters have diverse institutional affiliations. Please see the instructions below for submitting a proposal on-line.

For the 2013 meeting the Program Committee continues to welcome
unconventional sessions; that is, session formats that diverge in useful ways from the typical three/four papers with comment. These might include round-table sessions, workshop-style sessions with papers that are pre-circulated electronically, or “author meets critics” sessions. We also welcome poster proposals for presentation in poster sessions.
