From June 22 – 26, the Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) is holding its annual meeting in Singapore. The purpose of the society is to facilitate an interdisciplinary discussion on the relationship of technology to politics, economics, science, the arts, and the organization of production.

Three IPSP authors — Johan Schot (Chapter 1 & 22), Itty Abraham (Chapter 10), and Suzanne Moon (Chapter 16) — will be part of a roundtable discussion on Friday, June 24. This roundtable will focus on the International Panel on Social Progress, analyzing challenges related to its scope and complexity and exploring questions around the panel’s relationship to the theme of science and technology.

You can read more about the SHOT conference here.

And you can find an abstract for the panel session on Friday here.

We also invite you to read and engage with Johan Schot’s recent writing (together with Cian O’Donovan) on the role of Science and Technology within the IPSP.
