Annual Meeting


Interdependencies: From Local Microstories to Global Perspectives on the History of Technology

14-18 August 2023

Past symposia

Kranzberg lecture

Each symposium of ICOHTEC begins with an opening lecture named after Melvin Kranzberg, one of the founders of our Committee. As the society, we consider it a prestigious distinction and therefore invite to lecture the most distinguished scholars, in hope they would inspire and stimulate an engaging scholarly debate throughout the meeting. Every four years, however, when ICOHTEC meets within the International Congress of History of Science, and Technology (ICHST), we enjoy the opening lectures invited by the Congress’ organizers.

Here is the list of our past Kranzberg Lecturers.

While looking forward to the next intellectual feast, why not to read about Melvin himself? Please take a moment, and look at him through Robert Post’s eyes, who had a privilege to know him personally.
