        Subject: Maurice Daumas Prize 2014


The International Committee for the History of 
Technology, ICOHTEC, welcomes submissions for the 
Maurice Daumas Prize, which aims to encourage 
innovative scholarship in the history of 
technology. ICOHTEC is interested in the history 
of technological development as well as its 
relationship to science, society, economy, 
culture and the environment. The history of 
technology covers all periods of human history. 
There is no limitation as to theoretical or methodological approaches.

             The Maurice Daumas Prize will be 
awarded to the author of the best article 
submitted on the history of technology and 
published in a journal or edited volume in 2012 
or 2013. Submissions are welcomed from scholars 
of any country, and their focus can be the 
technological past of any period or part of the 
world. Eligible for the prize are original 
articles published in any of the official ICOHTEC 
languages (English, French, German, Russian or 
Spanish). If the language of publication is not 
English, applicants must include a three-page English summary.

             For the Maurice Daumas Prize 2014, 
please send your submission to each of the five 
Prize Committee members no later than 5 January 
2014. Electronic submissions are preferred. The 
winner will be contacted in late May 2014.

             The prize will be awarded at our 
41st Symposium, to be held 29 July – 2 August 
2014 in Brasov, Romania.  The winner will receive 
a cash prize of Euro 500 as well as a travel grant
of Euro 300 (if needed) to attend the ICOHTEC 
Symposium of 2014. Additionally, the
ICOHTEC Symposium will feature a special panel 
organized around the winning article.
