Reminder: Zoom talk on radiation protection tomorrow!
The Chair of Science, Technology and Gender Studies at FAU Erlangen-N=FCrnb= erg, headed by Prof. Maria Rentetzi, invites you to participate in the firs= t event in its new STGS Colloquium series.
On Thursday, January 20 - i.e., TOMORROW - at 18:00 CET, Dr. V=E9ronique St= enger (University of Geneva) will give a talk entitled "Towards a Socio-His= tory of Occupational Risk: Logics and Conflicts in the Development of Radia= tion Protection in Uranium Mines."
Abstract: While the radioprotection of other categories of workers was being signific= antly extended nationally and internationally since the 1950s, most of the = countries extracting uranium did not adopt any radiation protection legisla= tion for miners until the end of the 1960s. Using risk as an analytical cat= egory, Dr. Stenger will examine the socio-genesis of radioprotection in ura= nium mines, crossing national and international scales.
