Envirotech, a dynamic young interest group within the Society for the History of Technology and the American Society for Environmental History, invites nominations for the Envirotech Prize for Best Article on the Interplay between Technology and the Environment from the past three years. The Envirotech Prize recognizes the best essay, including both journal articles and book chapters, on the relationship between technology and the environment in history. To be eligible the essay must be published between January 1, 2006, and June 1, 2008. The prize committee is particularly seeking innovative publications that explore new ways of thinking about the interplay between technological systems and the natural environment. Articles in any language are welcome, but applicants will need to provide a translation of non-English articles. More junior scholars are especially encouraged to submit their publications.
The Envirotech Prize carries a cash award of $250 and will be conferred at the conference of the Society for the History of Technology in Lisbon, Portugal, October 11-14, 2008. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2008. Self-nomination is encouraged.
Please send one copy of your article and a brief curriculum vitae to each of the committee members via either post or e-mail:
