*applications for the 2016 award will be due December 15, 2015
The Brooke Hindle Postdoctoral Fellowship in the History of Technology honors the contribution of Brooke Hindle to the work of the Society for the History of Technology and awarded every other year. The proposal must be in a field related to the history of technology. Applicants should be intending either to prepare a dissertation for publication as articles or as a monograph, whether or not this involves fresh primary research, or to develop a new project based on primary research.
Applicants must hold a doctorate in the history of technology or a related field, normally awarded within the preceding four years, or expect to have graduated by the time of the award. (Those who graduated earlier and can demonstrate good reason why they should be considered as being at an early stage in their postdoctoral career—e.g., because of family commitments—may apply at the discretion of the committee chair.) Other awards may be held in conjunction with the Fellowship.
The Fellowship is for $10,000 and may be used, as further detailed below, for any purpose connected with research or writing in the history of technology for a period of not less than four months during the year following the award. The Brooke Hindle Fellowship will be awarded next in 2014.
