Participants are invited to “pitch” their dissertation topics in an accessible and entertaining three minute video and win registration, accommodations, and a banquet ticket for a SHOT meeting of their choice. SHOT is seeking submissions from graduate students and recent graduates in all fields whose work focuses on technology and has a historical dimension. If you are interested in STS, the histories of technology, science, medicine, or material culture, they would love to see your video. All entrants will have their videos featured on SHOT’s Vimeo channel and the best ten will be featured on Technology’s Stories.
Deadline for submissions is August 1. Please see http://www.historyoftechnology.org/tech_stories/video_contest.html for details and resources to help you get started!
