Dear colleagues - 

I’m forwarding the following message on behalf of Honghong Tinn.  If you have questions, please follow up with her or the other committee members.




Dear SIG Chairs, 

On behalf of the International Small Grants Committee of SHOT, I am writing to share with you SHOT's new initiatives-- International Small Grants, and would like to ask for your kind help in circulating the news with your SIG members. 

SHOT welcomes endorsement requests for events that globalize the Society’s intellectual terrain as well as broaden its international membership. SHOT seeks to advance the historical study of technology and its relations with politics, economics, labor, business, the environment, public policy, science, and the arts. The International Small Grants Program aims to foster a stronger international community for the study of the history of technology. We welcome proposals that engage with international and transnational topics of technology, as well as those who promote the growth of an international network of scholars in the history of technology.

We will consider proposals from external individuals and organizations. In 2018, deadlines for submitting proposals for funded endorsements are April 5 and September 15, and should be sent by email directly to each member of the International Small Grants Committee. The 2018 Committee members include Mara Mills (mmills at nyu.edu <mailto:mmills at nyu.edu>), Jenny L. Smith (jenny.smith at ust.hk <mailto:jenny.smith at ust.hk>), and Honghong Tinn (chair) (tinnho at earlham.edu <mailto:tinnho at earlham.edu>). Please see the SHOT website for further details: https://www.historyoftechnology.org/how-to-apply/ <https://www.historyoftechnology.org/how-to-apply/>

Thank you so much in advance. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Honghong Tinn, on behalf of the SHOT International Small Grants Committee
