MAURICE DAUMAS PRIZE 2011

Call for articles :: List of recipients :: Prize Committee :: About the Patron

In 2011 for the first time the ICOHTEC awarded the Maurice Daumas Prize. The new prize of 500 Euros will be awarded annually to the best article on the history of technology published within two previous calendar years. It is dedicated to professor Maurice Daumas, one of the founding fathers of ICOHTEC and famous French historian of technology. The prize is sponsored by the French Université de Technologie Belfort-Montbéliard.

In 2011 the Committee decided to award the prize to associate professor Joseph Masco from the University of Chicago. His prize winning article is titled 'Bad Weather: On Planetary Crisis' published in the international peer reviewed journal Social Studies of Science in 2010. The prize was delivered at the dinner in Gosvenor Hotel on the last day of the symposium.

By the deadline of late January 2011, two dozen articles from more than ten countries had been submitted for consideration. This number was considerably higher than expected and the competition became keen. Eligible were original articles published in any of the official ICOHTEC languages (English, French, German, Russian or Spanish) are eligible to the prize. Out of the 24 contributions, 23 were written in English and one in French.
