Call for Papers: SHOT Early Career Group 2022 Workshop
SHOT Early Career Interest Group (ECIG) invites applications from graduate students to submit abstracts to participate in an intensive workshop at the Society for the History of Technology’s annual conference, which will be held 10-13 November 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Accepted students will be asked to submit a short paper (roughly 2500-5000 words excluding footnotes), which will be pre-circulated and discussed in a seminar-style workshop. The workshop will provide graduate students with an opportunity to discuss their work in progress and to receive extensive feedback on their work from established scholars and their peers. The organizers of the workshop will connect workshop participants with mentors working on similar topics so they receive tailored commentary on their work and the opportunity to network with scholars in their field. We especially encourage early-stage research explorations and budding works in progress, including critical literature reviews, research excerpts from dissertation proposals, reworked class papers, or speculative research explorations. We also highly encourage papers exploring the themes of the conference, “Empire, Globalization, and Technological Change.”
