The International Committee for the History of
Technology, ICOHTEC, welcomes submissions for the Maurice Daumas
Prize, which aims to encourage innovative scholarship in the history of
technology. ICOHTEC is interested in the history of technological development
as well as its relationship to science, society, economy, culture and the
environment. There is no limitation as to theoretical or methodological
approaches.


            The prize will be awarded
to the author of the best article submitted which deals with the history of
technology in any period of the past or in any part of the world and which was
published in a journal or edited volume in 2013 or 2014. Eligible for the prize
are original articles published in (or later translated into) any of the
official ICOHTEC languages (English, French, German, Russian or Spanish). Submissions
are welcomed from scholars of any country who
are currently in graduate school or have received their doctorate within the
last seven years. Please send your submission and a brief (not to exceed
one-page) cv to each of the five Prize Committee members no later than
12 January 2015. Electronic submissions are preferred. The winner will be
contacted in late May 2015.


            The
prize will be awarded at our 42st Symposium, to be held 16 – 21
August 2015 in Tel Aviv, Israel.  The
winner will receive a cash prize of Euro 500 as well as a travel grant of Euro
300 (if needed) to attend the ICOHTEC Symposium, which will feature a special
panel organized around the winning article. The Daumas Prize is sponsored by L’Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard (UTBM),
France.
