Asbestos in Leeds: A History of Transnational Contamination
Dr Jessica Van Horssen examines the history of asbestos in Leeds originating from Canadian mines.
For much of the 20th century, asbestos was an essential component of modern life. Most of the asbestos distributed around the world came from Canada, and this talk examines the history of asbestos in Leeds originating from Canadian mines, offering a “lifecycle” of contamination that is both local and global.
This event is part of Leeds Cultural Conversations, a series of lunchtime talks organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts. For more information on the series please visit the website.
