Call for proposals – Envirotech Workshop at SHOT in Milan, 27 October 2019

The Envirotech SIG invites proposals for lightning presentations (8 minutes followed by Q&A) at a special workshop session on Envirotech history to be held at the SHOT conference in Milan on Sunday, 27 October 2019, 9:30am-12:30pm. The workshop will also feature a roundtable discussion on the state of the art in envirotech history.

All subjects are welcome for the lightning presentations, but presenters are especially encouraged to focus on a particular primary source (text, image, object, etc.) that they deem useful for thinking about Envirotech in comparative or global perspective. 

Submissions for the lightning presentations should be sent in the form of a title and abstract (up to 200 words) to Etienne Benson ( and Aleksandra Kobiljski ( by 15 August 2019. Presenters will be notified of decisions by 31 August 2019.

This special Sunday workshop will be in addition to the usual Envirotech breakfast, which will be held on Saturday morning. If you plan to attend both, be sure to check the boxes for both events when registering.
