The International Committee for the History of Technology, ICOHTEC, welcomes submissions for its article prize, the Maurice Daumas Prize, which aims to encourage innovative and superbly written research in the history of technology. ICOHTEC is interested in the history of technology focusing on technological development as well as its relationship to science, society, economy, culture and the environment. The history of technology covers all periods of human history. There is no limitation as to theoretical or methodological approaches.
The Maurice Daumas Prize will be awarded to the best article submitted on the history of technology and published in a journal or edited volume in 2011 or 2012. Submissions are welcomed from junior and senior scholars of any country, and their focus can be the technological past of any part of the world.
Eligible for the prize are original articles published in any of the official ICOHTEC languages (English, French, German, Russian or Spanish). If the language of publication is not English, applicants should include a three-page English summary.
For the Maurice Daumas Prize 2013, please send your submission to each of the four Prize Committee members. Your submissions must be postmarked no later than 23 January 2013.
