Society for the History of Technology (SHOT)
Annual Meeting – New Orleans (Louisiana)
18-21 November 2021

Full Session Proposals

The extended deadline for submitting proposals is 24 April 2022.

Sessions of 3 or 4 papers, with a session chair listed in the proposal. You may also list a commentator. If a commentator has a central role in the session (e.g., a titled commentary), we suggest that there be only 3 papers in the session.

Especially if compiled based on an open session proposal, sessions may be organized into a “thread” consisting of two and at most three sessions, which the program committee will strive to schedule in consecutive sessions in the same room.

Proposals for complete sessions must include:

The session organizer should combine all elements into one pdf file with numbered pages. Please name this file with your last name and the word “proposal,” e.g., “smith_proposal.pdf “.

Proposals sponsored by one of SHOT’s special interest groups (SIGs) must note this in the session abstract.

Guidelines and advice for preparing an abstract for SHOT can be found here.

Those organizing session proposals are asked to submit a brief statement separate from their session description as part of their session proposal that describes the composition of their panel in a way that addresses such approaches to inclusion as described above, and the efforts made to create an inclusive environment for historical scholarship.
