Trajectories of Risk is a case study of one very complicated work site that is in a complex relationship with many individuals, communities, civic and watchdog groups, corporate managers, and public agencies. One aim of this project is to give citizens who have not had a public forum for telling their stories a forum for doing precisely that. Another aim of this project is to collect a data set of narratives from individuals who have bumped up against the complicated machinery of prime and sub-contractors and state and federal agencies as they have attempted to resolve concerns about safety, health, or the environment in order to analyze those narratives. I hope to learn two things: First, I hope to identify strategies used by individuals who feel they have been successful in resolving their concerns or complaints as well as strategies and tactics used by the entities with power to shut down such complaints. Second, I hope to identify the factors that push some individuals to become "whistleblowers," and to identify the strategies they use to transition into this role.
