Reminder: Zoom talk on radiation protection tomorrow!

                Dear all,

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."

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.

To join us via Zoom please register here:

Future talks in the series will be held by John Krige, Donatella Germanese,=
 and Fabian L=FCscher. Watch our website for more info: https://www.stgs.fa=

All the best,
Bj=F6rn Bosserhoff
