CFP: SHOT, 2012

The Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) will hold its 2012 meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, on October 4-7. The Program Committee invites paper and panel proposals on any topic in the history of technology, broadly defined. The Committee welcomes proposals for individual papers or sessions, as well as works-in-progress from researchers at all levels. Unconventional sessions—that is, session formats that diverge in useful ways from the typical three/four papers with comment—continue to be encouraged. These might include round-table sessions, workshop-style sessions with papers that are pre-circulated electronically, or "author meets critics" sessions. Proposals are also solicited for presentation in poster sessions.
   Special themes for 2012 are "Technology, sustainability, and environment," and "Technology, East-West relations, and the Cold War." The deadline for proposals is March 31, 2012.
   Please see the full SHOT call for papers for additional details and submission information, which will be available after February 13.
