H-Risk-and-Safety promotes an interdisciplinary, intellectural exchange about the history of risk, accidents, safety and disasters. H-Risk-and-Safety will introduce a much needed historical exploration of how a variety of actors dealt with risk and constructed safety from ancient times to the present. This network will provide a forum for scholars to exchange bibliographic information, research and teaching aids in an effort to promote an international examination of concepts of risk and safety broadly defined.
H-PCAACA is tweeting an artifact a day from their new collection "American Childhood in 25 Artifacts." Today's artifact is Jarts and the entry by Kate Roberts is all about risk, safety, and protection during play. Thought the H-Risk-and-Safety group might enjoy it and/or have comments to add.
