This day symposium at the Centre for International Business History, University of Reading, aims to explore the political economy of safety and the nature and meanings of corporate social responsibility.
We invite papers on all aspects of the history of safety and risk as they relate to business, broadly defined. Papers might seek to discuss how businesses respond to the challenges of safety; how different actors use safety for their own ends; the economics of safety; the role of safety in the service sector; or the interactions between safety at work and public safety (for example, in safety education).
Proposals for papers of around 30 minutes should be sent to Mike Esbester, and should include an abstract of no more than 500 words and a one-page CV, both in Word format.
