Call for 2017 SHOT International Scholar (IS) Nominations

Dear Colleague

The deadline for the 2017 SHOT International Scholar (IS) Nominations is January 30, 2017.

We are calling on former SHOT International Scholars to let us know of outstanding nominees for this year’s selection.

As you know, every year, the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) calls for nominations from non-North American scholars to join SHOT's International Scholars Program. Nominee submissions  are reviewed by members of SHOT's Internationalization Committee and up to four scholars are chosen each year for a two year term.

The aim of the Program is to foster the individual careers of International Scholars and to support local networks and activities for and by scholars working on the history of technology. International Scholars act as ambassadors for SHOT in their countries and regions, both by informing the Society about the state and developments of the history of technology in their regions, and by helping to disseminate information about the Society and its activities. 

To become a SHOT International Scholar, you must reside and work in underrepresented countries at the time of selection. Graduate students, post docs, and visiting scholars who are living  and working in the United States or Western Europe are not eligible to become International Scholars; however, they are eligible to apply once they return to their home countries. Of these potential  candidates, any one at any rank, from graduate student up through senior scholar, is eligible to become an International Scholar. Individuals may be nominated as International Scholars by any member of the Society, and we also encourage self nomination. For further information about the nomination and application process, as well as the benefits and support provided to International Scholars, please visit our site:
