History of Technology WITH Group Travel Award Applications Available

Women in Technological History (WITH), a Special Interest Group of the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT), announces the availability of its travel awards for 2011. The purpose of the award is to encourage participation of “new voices” at the SHOT annual meeting. 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 2011 meeting will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, November 3-6, 2011. This year the meeting will be co-located with the annual meetings of the History of Science Society and the Society for Social Studies of Science.
   The WITH Travel Award is open to individuals who are giving a paper at the SHOT annual meeting. Priority 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.
   Application deadline for the WITH Travel Award is June 15, 2011. For more information and the application form, see the WITH homepage or contact Susan Schmidt Horning, chair of the award committee, at schmidts@stjohns.edu.
