Maurice Daumas Prize – ICOHTEC’s Article Prize

  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.
There is no limitation as to theoretical or methodological approaches.

  The prize will be awarded to the author of the best article submitted
which deals with the history of technology in any period of the past or
in any part of the world and which was published in a journal or edited
volume in 2018 or 2019. Eligible for the prize are original articles
published in (or later translated into) any of the official ICOHTEC
languages (English, French, German, Russian or Spanish). Submissions are
welcomed from scholars of any country who are currently in graduate
school or have received their doctorate within the last seven years.
Please send your submission and a brief (not to exceed one-page) cv to
each of the six Prize Committee members no later than 15 January 2020.
Electronic submissions are preferred. The winner will be contacted in
late April 2020.

  The prize will be awarded at our 47th Symposium, to be held in
Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in summer 2020 (13-17 July 2020). 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, which will feature a
special panel organized around the winning article. The Daumas Prize is
sponsored by the Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard

   MAURICE DAUMAS (1910 - 1984) – The French Trailblazer

The history of technology would never have become a prominent field of
historical research without energetic pathbreakers. Maurice Daumas was
one of them. One of his better known early works is  Les instruments
scientifiques aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, which was also published in
English. Between 1962 and 1978, he edited a highly acclaimed history of
technology, Histoire générale des techniques, in five volumes, which has
been translated into English and Spanish, and used as a textbook in
various countries. In France, Daumas was also the pioneer of industrial
archaeology. Daumas was the first secretary general of ICOHTEC and the
host of its symposium at Pont- à-Mousson in 1970.
