SHOT Global Community Scholars

Applications and nominations for SHOT Global Community Scholars are now open!

Each year, SHOT designates selected Global Community Scholars for a two-year term. These scholars act as ambassadors for the society in their countries and regions, both by informing SHOT about the history of technology in their regions, and by helping to disseminate information about the society and its activities. In return, they receive priority for travel grant applications and a free two-year SHOT membership, which includes a subscription to Technology and Culture.

For a variety of reasons, the selection committee was unable to operate last year. It is now back up and running. To make up for last year’s lacuna, it will select up to 6 scholars for 2023-25. In keeping with the geographic directions of SHOT’s current community-building efforts, the selection this year will focus on scholars from Africa, Latin America, and South Asia.

We strongly encourage scholars from these parts of the world to apply. We also encourage members to nominate colleagues.

Applications and nominations are simple, consisting of the candidate’s CV and a brief (200 word) statement of interest in the appointment. Please send these materials as a single pdf to all the committee members simultaneously:

Professor Madhumita Saha, committee chair. madhumitasaha30@gmail.com
Professor Damilola Adebayo. adebayod@yorku.ca
Professor Sonia Robles. srobles@udel.edu
Professor Yovanna Pineda. yovannaypineda@gmail.com

The deadline to receive applications is Monday, 25 September. Recipients will be announced during SHOT’s annual meeting in Long Beach.
