Deadline for proposals: 22 August 2022
The Canadian Science and Technology Historical Association (CSTHA) invites graduate students and early-career scholars to apply for the CSTHA’s in-person Writing Workshop. This workshop will be hosted at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum in Ottawa, Ontario and will feature guest speakers that will explore academic writing, publishing, and professional development in the history of science, technology, environment, and medicine. It offers the opportunity to receive detailed feedback on works-in-progress. Participants will be expected to publish a blog post on the CSTHS blog (cross-posted with the NiHCE Otter blog) based on their paper or experience at the writing workshop.
The CSTHA will contribute up to $500 towards participant travel costs and $300 towards accommodations. Completed draft papers will need to be submitted a month before the workshop takes place.
We welcome paper abstracts in English and/or French. Topics can include any aspect of the history of science, technology, or medicine. We particularly encourage papers addressing this theme from historical Canadian perspectives.
Writing workshop participants must be members of CSTHA. Membership is free for students; non-students pay $60. Become a member or renew your membership here.
Please submit your CV, proposal, and direct any questions to cstha.ahstc AT gmail DOT com by 22 August 2022. Selected candidates will be notified early September.
