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.
