General Information

The Society for the History of Technology was formed in 1958 to encourage the study of the development of technology and its relations with society and culture. 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. SHOT now numbers almost 2000 individual members and 1500 institutions around the world. In addition to professional historians and museum curators, SHOT members include practicing scientists and engineers, anthropologists, librarians, political scientists, and economists.


Technology and Culture is a scholarly journal dedicated to the historical study of technology in its relationships with society and culture. Although it is a journal of history, it inclines toward an interdisciplinary view and publishes the work of historians, anthropologists, engineers, scientists, museum curators, archivists, sociologists, and others, on topics ranging from architecture to agriculture to aeronautics. It also has a significant number of contributors and subscribers from outside the United States. The journal is published by the Johns Hopkins University Press.
