CFP: SHOT Meeting 2015

The next annual meeting of the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on October 8-11, 2015. According to the call for papers,
. . . the Program Committee invites paper and session proposals on any topic in a broadly defined history of technology, including topics that push the boundaries of the discipline. The Committee welcomes proposals for individual papers or complete sessions from researchers at all levels. We also welcome proposals from all researchers, whether veterans or newcomers to SHOT's meetings, and regardless of primary discipline. Submitters are encouraged to propose sessions that include a diverse mix of participants: multinational origins, gender, graduate students and junior scholars with senior scholars, significantly diverse institutional affiliations, etc.
SHOT has three categories of submissions: individual papers; 3-4 paper sessions; and "unconventional" sessions such as roundtables and workshops. In addition, there are 15 "Open Sessions" on specific topics suggested by panel organizers, to which interested presenters can apply directly. Please see the full call for papers for complete details.
     SHOT also holds a Graduate Student Preconference; information is available here.
     The deadline for all submissions is March 31, 2015.
