The Brooke Hindle Postdoctoral Fellowship in the History of Technology honors the contribution of Brooke Hindle to the work of the Society for the History of Technology. The Fellowship, made possible thanks to the great generosity of his family, is for $10,000 and may be used, as further detailed below, for any purpose connected with research or writing in the history of technology for a period of not less than three months during the year following the award.
Applicants must hold a doctorate in the history of technology or a related field, awarded no more than four years before the application deadline, or expect to have graduated by the time of the award. (Those who graduated earlier and can demonstrate good reason why they should be considered as being at an early stage in their postdoctoral career–e.g., because of family commitments–may apply at the discretion of the committee chair.) Other awards may be held in conjunction with the Fellowship.
The proposal must be in a field related to the history of technology. Applicants should be intending either to prepare a dissertation for publication as articles or as a monograph, whether or not this involves fresh primary research, or to develop a new project based on primary research. Applications must be in English, and should be sent to the committee chair, Prakash Kumar. Applications for the 2017 award are due April 1, 2017.
For those expecting to graduate, the application should include:
For those holding the doctoral degree and intending to publish their dissertation as articles or a book, the application should include:
Applicants are strongly urged to also submit copies of letters of interest from potential publishers or similar supporting material.
For those holding the doctoral degree and working towards a new project beyond the dissertation, the application should include:
