The International Committee for the History of Technology (ICOHTEC) organizes its 2nd Summer School in conjunction of its annual symposium in Saint-Étienne, France, from 16 to 17 July 2018. It deals with the significance of technology for the development of society and other theoretical approaches to interaction between technology and other human activities. The summer school is intended for Ph.D. candidates and other young career researchers. It consists of English-language lectures, participants’ presentations and discussion sessions. Participation fee is 50 euro and it includes participation services, lunches and pass for local public transportation in the city. Students will be lodged at the Jean Monnet University's Halls of Residence at their own cost (34 euro/night). A limited number of ICOHTEC travel grants (200/350 euro) will be available for Summer School participants and they cover part of travel costs from regions outside France.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a motivation letter and a research supervisor's recommendation letter. They ought to be sent to prof. Hans-Joachim Braun ( email@example.com ) by March 5th 2018. More information and instructions for applicants can be found in the link:
Just after the summer school, a four-day symposium will begin in the same campus of the University of Jean Monnet, where summer school students are also welcome to attend and present papers on their research topics. The symposium’s general theme is "Technological Drive from Past to Future? 50 years of ICOHTEC." The deadline for submitting paper, poster and session proposals is February 5th 2018.
