Society for the History of Technology
2008 Annual Conference

The Society for the History of Technology will hold
its annual meeting

in Lisbon, October 11-14, to continue the celebration
of the 50th
anniversary of the founding of the Society. The
theme of last year's

conference was "SHOT@50: Looking Back." This year's
will be "SHOT@50:
Looking Beyond." To that end, the Program Committee
seeks papers or
sessions for the 2008 meeting that concern the history
of technology
as it may or ought to be practiced in the future.
Papers or sessions
devoted to the question of how we shall write the
history of
technology in the future are particularly encouraged.
To serve the
purpose of "Looking Beyond" the Committee also
appreciates papers or
panels reaching out beyond SHOT's current disciplinary
boundaries. The

Committee will also consider papers of high quality on
any aspect of
the history of technology, broadly defined.
The Committee welcomes proposals for individual papers
or sessions, as

well as works-in-progress from researchers of all
stripes (including
graduate students, chaired professors, and independent
scholars). It
welcomes proposals from those new to SHOT, regardless
of discipline.
The committee will also consider alternative venues
for presenting
one's scholarship, such as poster sessions, short
(8-minute) quick
sessions, author-meets-critics panels, discussion of
papers, and others.

The deadline for submission is March 14, 2008.

Proposals for individual papers must include:
1) a one-page abstract (maximum 600 words)
2) a one-page curriculum vitae, including current
postal and e-mail

Proposals for complete sessions must include:
1) a description of the session that explains how
individual papers
contribute to an overall theme.
2) the names and paper titles of the presenters
3) for each presenter, a one-page summary (maximum 600
words) of the
paper's topic, argument(s), and evidence used
4) for the commentator, chair, and each presenter:
one-page c.v., with

postal and e-mail addresses

Please indicate if a proposal is sponsored by one of
SHOT's special
interest groups.

Submission Instructions

1) Materials should be sent as a single text
attachment to an
e-mail message to the Program Committee Chair, Martina
Hessler, at:
shot AT

2) Proposals for complete sessions as well as
individual papers shall

be submitted in one file.

3) Please adhere to the 600-word limit for each
paper. Use no unusual

fonts or special formatting, and save your attachment
either as a
Microsoft Word document (.doc) or as a Rich Text
Format (.rtf) file.
Nearly all word processing programs, including those
used on the
Macintosh, can save text in the Rich Text Format. Do
not use Adobe
Acrobat (pdf).

4) Name your attachment with your last name and the
word 'proposal',
e.g. 'Smith_proposal.doc'.

5) A session organizer should also deliver a
description of the
overall session. If you are organizing a session and
proposing a paper

in that session, you will be delivering both an
"abstract" and
"proposal", plus your c.v.

6) If you are proposing a non-traditional session you
may indicate that
in the "abstract." These also require a curriculum vitae.
