    • Accidents and Emergencies: Risk, Welfare and Safety in Europe and North America, c. 1750–2000

      We live in a society obsessed with risk and safety. Via a medley of state-related and commercial agencies, we insure ourselves against the possibility of death, ill-health, accident, theft and unemployment, subjecting every facet of our lives to the calculus of risk. Meanwhile, a battery of signs, leaflets, manuals and adverts spread the message of ‘health and safety’, reminding us of the dangers lurking in our everyday actions.

It will also enable us to foreground how we see power, context, historical and structural forces playing out in our local practices.

      This is a Research conference for the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty. It is an opportunity for Humanities and Social Sciences researchers to learn about the different research taking place across the Faculty. Dean of HSS Faculty Prof Anne-Marie Kilday, will launch the event as our keynote speaker. There will be a total of 15 papers throughout the day via five panels on the themes of 'Theorising Gender', 'Masculinities', 'Femininities', 'Intersectionality', and the 'Public and Private Spheres of Gender'. Staff from all departments, offering diverse perspectives will present papers to which all HSS Faculty Staff and Research Students are welcome. A sit-down lunch will be served with time for discussion and networking among attendees, there will also be opportunities for questions following each paper. Oxford Brookes Vice-Chancellor, Prof Janet Beer will provide closing comments to the proceedings and a drinks reception will follow, at the end of what we imagine will be a lively and engaging day.
