An interdisciplinary organization, SHOT is concerned not only with the history of technological devices and processes, but also with the relations of technology to science, politics, social change, the arts and humanities, and economics.
This is the home page for the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT), an American organization interested in studying technology in the past and its relationship to culture, politics, economics, art and society. The site has three subsections: one provides information about the organization, its membership and leadership, informing visitors how to sign up to become a member, and displaying updated details about prizes, awards and meetings. Two, covers the publications of the organization, specifically the SHOT newletter and booklet series as well as Technology and Culture, published by SHOT and the Johns Hopkins University Press. The latter is available on line only to subscribers. The last subsection, three, lists materials (mostly on the Web) of interest to historians of technology, such as syllabi from history of technology courses and the sites of other institutions dedicated to the history of technology.
