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.
While we know that World War I killed millions, analysis of its demographic effects on the surviving population has been relatively limited since studies by Louis Henry on France and Jay Winter on Britain in the 1960s and 1970s. The centenary of the Armistice will occur during this year's meeting of the Social Science History Association making it an especially appropriate time to consider the demographic impacts of the Great War.
