Society for the History of Technology Joins Consortium

The Consortium welcomes the Society for the History of Technology as a member institution.

The Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) was  formed in 1958 to encourage the study of the development of technology and its relations with  society and culture. An interdisciplinary organization, SHOT is concerned not only with the  history of technological devices and processes but also with technology in history—that is, the  relationship of technology to politics, economics, science, the arts, and the organization of  production, and with the role it plays in structuring social relations. SHOT members represent a  wide range of disciplines and professions, from history and the humanities to engineering and  science, and come from some thirty-five countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and  Africa.
SHOT members have been deeply involved in Consortium activities for several years. We are delighted to strengthen the relationship between our organizations and officially welcome SHOT to the Consortium.
