HSOC Doctoral Students Shine at SHOT

Posted by Admin On 12:26:00 PM
Three doctoral students in the History and Sociology of Technology and Science participated in the 2015 annual meeting of the Society for the History of Technology, held October 8-11 in Albuquerque.

Brian Jirout, who currently holds a doctoral dissertation fellowship from the National Air and Space Museum, presented a paper entitled “Civil Remote Sensing for Sale: Commercializing Landsat Image Use, 1978-1989.” The paper was part of a panel entitled “’Up in the Air’: Aerospace as Arenas for Public/Private Cooperation and Contention.”

Emily Gibson, a doctoral candidate and holder of a Dean’s Fellowship, also presented at the session. Her paper, “Air France — ‘The World’s Largest Airline’: A Commercial Firm as the Chosen Instrument of France’s Colonial Mission, 1948-1950s,” utilized archival materials she obtained while serving as a graduate assistant at Georgia Tech’s campus in Lorraine, France.

Gibson also participated in a special Presidential Roundtable entitled “The Future of SHOT: A Graduate-Led Forum.” The session was organized in part by John Krige, Georgia Tech’s Kranzberg Professor of the History of Technology, and second-year HSTS doctoral student Alice Clifton, who presided at the event.
