Call for Proposals SHOT Early Career Group 2023 Workshop (extended deadline)
The Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) Early Career Interest Group (ECIG) invites graduate students to submit 250-300 word paper proposals for an intensive workshop at the SHOT annual meeting, 26-29 October 2023 in Long Beach California.
The workshop will provide graduate students with an opportunity to discuss their work in progress and to receive extensive feedback on their work from established scholars and their peers.The organizers of the workshop will connect workshop participants with mentors working on similar topics so they receive tailored commentary on their work and the opportunity to network with scholars in their field.
We especially encourage early-stage research explorations and budding works in progress, including critical literature reviews, research excerpts from dissertation proposals, reworked class papers, or speculative research explorations. As with the annual meeting, we also encourage papers that explore anew what has traditionally been centered or overlooked in discussions about the relationship between technology and power
Each selected participant will have 15 minutes to present a summary of their paper, and to note key areas where feedback would be most valuable; followed by 15 minutes for questions and feedback from mentors, panel attendants, and the organizers. The workshop will be mediated by the ECIG representatives. Accepted students will need to register for the conference (lower registration rate for graduate students) Students will be eligible to apply for travel funding, through the SHOT website. Please note that no individual can give more than one titled commentary or paper, including a paper in the Grad Student Workshop, at SHOT.
The extended deadline for proposals is 30 July, 2023. Accepted participants will be expected to submit a short paper (roughly 2500-5000 words excluding footnotes) no later than September 1 2023.
Submission Instructions: Please send 250-300 word paper proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. In your proposal, please include your name, email, institution, and a short description of your field/subfield
