Call for Authors: Routledge Companion to the History of Computing

We are seeking authors for a proposed Routledge Companion to the History of Computing. We are looking for 4000-5000 word essays that survey a topic in the history of computing and critically discuss the existing scholarship (including your own, if applicable) and emerging trends in this area. Initially we are gathering names of interested authors and the topic(s) they would like to write on, for inclusion in the proposal. See attached CFP for more details.

If you would like to contribute—or have questions–please contact us ( by November 10 with a brief paragraph describing the topic you want to write on and the themes you would like to address.


The editors:
Janet Abbate
Corinna Schlombs
