Description

Jessica Van Horssen, ‘Asbestos in Leeds: A History of Transnational Contamination.’

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.
