New Special Issue
Written by historians and social, medical and occupational health scientists from a number of countries, the articles in this special issue are based on the proceedings of a unique interdisciplinary symposium held in Paris in 2013 to explore the history of silica and silicosis science over the past century, and specifically the influence of the seminal 1930 ILO Silicosis Conference held in Johannesburg, South Africa. Reflecting a constant interplay between past and present, the articles explore both the evolution and diversion of ideas about silica and silicosis over the past 85 years and propose avenues for future research on this ancient but persisting occupational hazard.
