Society for the History of Technology (SHOT)
Annual Meeting – New Orleans (Louisiana)
18-21 November 2021
Deadline for submissions is 18 April 2021
All organized sessions as published in our 2020 NOLA Program (https://www.historyoftechnology.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Program-website-version-24-june-2020.pdf) will be given three options to present in 2021.
As a session or roundtable organizer, please contact your fellow presenters and ask them whether they wish to make changes to the abstracts of their presentations or to the overall session proposal. If you all agree to present your work as published in the 2020 program, you may re-submit your unchanged session proposal. In this case, you will be given priority for a slot if we are able to meet in person. (Participants in re-submitted sessions may choose to present their paper remotely, and the session may request to be considered for a hybrid live-streamed format – please see above for details.) Resubmitting a panel proposal does not guarantee acceptance, but does give it priority.
Submit an unchanged 2020 session proposal here.
As research develops, plans and availability change, and new connections or urgencies emerge, so option 1 may not seem applicable to your session or roundtable. For example, you may wish to keep the title and abstract of your proposal the same, but one or two speakers have withdrawn and been replaced with new speakers. If your proposal differs in these ways from the version accepted to the 2020 program, please re-submit your session proposal and indicate that a similar proposal was accepted to the 2020 meeting. Resubmitting a panel proposal does not guarantee acceptance, but does give it priority.
Submit a 2020 session proposal with changes here for a traditional session, or here for an unconventional session.
Our call for papers will also invite new proposals. Should your ideas or plans for a session change considerably to what you have submitted in 2020 (as published in our 2020 program), please submit a new proposal.
Submit a new session proposal through the conference page, or through the link here for a traditional session, or here for an unconventional session.
Attention: If you re-submit a joint SHOT-HSS session or roundtable proposal, please also consult HSS’s guidelines, as you will have to re-submit your proposal to both societies.
