SHOT Planning for 50th Anniversary

AHA Staff, April 2005

The Society for the History of Technology has begun planning the celebration of its 50th anniversary, which will be commemorated at the 2007 annual meeting in Washington, D.C., and the 2008 meeting in Lisbon. An ad-hoc committee chaired by Bob Post and Steve Cutcliffe has been set up. The president, vice president, and secretary of the society will be ex officio members of the committee. The committee, which will be meeting in Washington, D.C., this spring, invites SHOT members to suggest ideas—for an overall theme or themes; about sponsorship; for program sessions and publications to appear both before and after the meetings; and for performances, special events, and memorabilia. Details are available on the SHOT web site, www.shot.jhu.edu.
