Call for participation in SHOT’s Three Minute Dissertation Video Contest
Call for participation in SHOT’s Three minute dissertation video contest
Want to spread the word about your research to a broader audience? SHOT is pleased to announce its first ever three minute video contest for PhD students and recent graduates whose dissertation engages with the history of technology. We welcome participants from the history of science, technology or medicine, STS, media studies, material culture studies or any other area in which understanding technology from a historical perspective matters.
The contest invites you to “pitch” your dissertation topic in a three minute video. A panel of judges will choose the contestant who best explains the substance of the dissertation in an accessible and entertaining way. The winner will receive registration, accommodations and a banquet ticket for a SHOT conference of their choice. The ten best films will be published on the SHOT website and all films will be accessible on SHOT’s Vimeo channel.
The film should be directed at an educated general public, and cannot be longer than three minutes. Any language is welcome, but if the film has narration and is not in English we request English subtitles or some other aid to communication. We encourage creativity. Participants are welcome to add for example music, illustrations or animation.
This is a great opportunity to let people know what you are working on!
Deadline for submission: 1 August 2014
