Occupational and Environmental Health: At the Crossroads of Migrations, Empires and Social Movements

The 7th International Conference on the History of Occupational and Environmental Health is being organized by the Scientific Committee on the History of Prevention of Occupational and Environmental Diseases of the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH). The scientific programme will focus on the migration of workers in various time periods, the interconnections of empires, public health in post-colonial periods, and the role of trade unions and other social movements in occupational and environmental health. The evolution of occupational and environmental health especially in Africa, as well as globally, will be addressed.

All conference and programme updates, registration process, fees and the submission of abstracts information will be available at the conference website at: icohhistory2020.ukzn.ac.za

The conference is intended to promote interconnections among historians, social scientists and occupational and environmental practitioners/researchers. Leading historians in occupational and environmental health have been invited to give keynote lectures. In addition, there will be an open call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations and a pre-conference methods training workshop.
