Envirotech Prize for the Best Article on the Interplay between Technology and the Environment

We are inviting nominations for the “Envirotech Prize for the Best Article on the Interplay between Technology and the Environment,” which will be awarded for the first time in 2004. Articles published in the three previous calendar years (2001 to 2003) are eligible.

Envirotech is a group of historians and history-minded scholars who study the interaction of society, technology, and the environment. We are particularly seeking innovative publications that explore new ways of thinking about the interplay between technological systems and the natural environment. In awarding this prize, preference will be given to graduate students and new scholars not more than five years past their Ph.D.s.

Articles may be submitted in any language; however, for articles not written in English, the applicant will need to provide a translation. The Envirotech Prize carries a $300 cash award and will be awarded at Envirotech’s meeting during the conference of the American Society for Environmental History (ASEH) in Victoria, British Columbia, March 31 – April 4, 2004. The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2003. Self-nomination is encouraged.

Please submit one copy of your article, together with a brief curriculum vitae, to each of the committee members:
