With Travel Award, Copenhagen 2012
Deadline Extended: WITH TRAVEL AWARD – A Call for “New Voices” in Technological History
The SHOT Special Interest Group Women in Technological History [WITH] announces its travel award for 2012. The purpose of the award is to encourage participation of “new voices” at the annual meeting of the Society for the History of Technology [SHOT]. WITH invites applications from scholars presenting topics or perspectives underrepresented in SHOT as well as from individuals who can contribute to the annual meeting’s geographic and cultural diversity.
The SHOT 2012 meeting will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from the 4th to 7th of November 2012. For meeting details, see http://www.historyoftechnology.org/annual_meeting.html.
Eligibility for the WITH Travel Award is open to individuals who are giving a paper at the SHOT annual meeting. Priorities for the WITH award will go to: (1) a scholar or graduate student new to SHOT belonging to a group underrepresented in SHOT, whose paper addresses issues of gender, race, ethnicity, and/or difference in the history of technology; (2) a non-US, non-Western graduate student or scholar new to SHOT presenting on any topic.
The Travel Award is designed to help defray some of the costs associated attending the SHOT annual meeting. Up to two awards may be offered. Awardees will receive a check for $400, with the possibility of a small amount of additional funds depending on the awardee’s stated need and WITH’s resources.
The winner(s) will also be honoured as our guest(s) at the annual WITH breakfast or lunch. Application deadline for the WITH Travel Award is July 15, 2012. For more information and the application form, go to the WITH homepage at http://www.women-in-technological-history.net or contact Aaron Alcorn, chair of the award committee, at [email protected]
