2011 With Travel Award – A Call For “new Voices” In Technological History
WITH TRAVEL AWARD – A Call for “New Voices” in Technological History
The SHOT Special Interest Group Women in Technological History [WITH] announces its travel award for 2011. The purpose of the award is to encourage participation of “new voices” at the annual meeting of the Society for the History of Technology [SHOT]. WITH invites applications from scholars presenting topics or perspectives underrepresented in SHOT as well as from individuals who can contribute to the annual meeting’s geographic and cultural diversity.
The SHOT 2011 meeting will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, from the 3rd to 6th of November 2011. This year the meeting will be co-located with the annual meetings of the History of Science Society and the Society for Social Studies of Science. See http://www.historyoftechnology.org/annual_meeting.html.
Eligibility for the WITH Travel Award is open to individuals who are giving a paper at the SHOT annual meeting. Priorities for the WITH award will go to: (1) a scholar or graduate student new to SHOT belonging to a group underrepresented in SHOT, whose paper addresses issues of gender, race, ethnicity, and/or difference in the history of technology; (2) a non-US, non-Western graduate student or scholar new to SHOT presenting on any topic.
Up to two awards will be made. Awardees will receive a check for $350, with the possibility of additional funds depending on the awardee’s stated need and WITH’s resources.
The winner(s) will also be honoured as our guest(s) at the annual WITH breakfast or lunch. Application deadline for the WITH Travel Award is June 15, 2011. For more information and the application form, go to the WITH homepage at http://www.women-in-technological-history.net/ or contact Susan Schmidt Horning, chair of the award committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
