Safety and occupational medicine in Italy in the twentieth century through the photographic documentation

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research aims firstly to provide a historiographical updated information on the subject of occupational health in Italy. The researcher will investigate the bibliographic and archival material in some specialized libraries, such as those of Labour Clinic of Milan and of ISPESL in Roma.
The second phase will try to study the health conditions of workers in Italy. The researcher will analyze the major medical and social surveys in the first quarter of the century, in particular those carried out by the medical inspectorate, not only to study the actual workers’ health, but to analyze the strategies and policies of government intervention. Then it will be necessary to study the work of the Inspectorate under the fascist period and to collect new documents from the archives of the ENPI.
Finally, the researcher will search for images and photographs relating to worker’s health, and will provide for their collection, digitization and organization in a digital database.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
