Dearborn SHOT Talk

SHOT Talk for Dearborn 2014: Presidential Roundtables and Plenaries

Last year in Portland, we solicited your comments, feedback, and suggestions about the session topics and individual papers at the conference through online commenting – the first time SHOT had offered such an option tied to sessions and papers. Our goal was to stimulate a discussion among the Society’s members about SHOT’s intellectual directions and activities. We hope to do the same this year in Dearborn, and toward this end we invite you to comment on the three presidential roundtables featured in Dearborn, as well as the special plenary in honor of the life and work of Thomas P. Hughes.

Although it does not have its own comments page, you may also click here to read the full text of David E. Nye’s opening plenary talk, “Toward a Definition of the History of Technology,” delivered on Thursday, November 6, at 6:00pm at The Henry Ford.
