International Scholars receive a regular SHOT membership at no cost during their appointment and a subscription to the journal Technology and Culture.
International Scholars also receive the highest priority when applying for travel funding to attend the SHOT annual meeting.
Applicants must reside and work in underrepresented countries — meaning outside of the U.S. and Western Europe — at the time of their selection. The program accepts applications from graduate students up through senior scholars.
International Scholars shall act as ambassadors for the Society 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.
At each annual meeting, SHOT will host a special gathering to welcome current international scholars, introduce them to SHOT officers, and discuss the intellectual dimensions of the field that pertain to international research.
To apply to the SHOT International Scholar Program, please send a copy of your CV and a letter to EACH member of the committee and to SHOT secretary Amy Bix at shot[at]iastate.edu.
