This special issue of the Journal of Risk Research presents papers developed by some of the scholars who participated in an AHRC-funded network, ‘Fate, Luck, and Fortune: Narratives of Environmental Risk’. The topic was conceived by Esther Eidinow (University of Bristol), PI on the project, and the network was developed with Georgina Endfield (University of Liverpool) as CI, while both were at the University of Nottingham. This introduction provides information about the rationale, method and activities of the network, and a discussion of its key findings.
