The Seismic Cultures Workshop

The Seismic Cultures Workshop will convene 15 plus scholars from across the globe at University of Washington on September to 18 and 19, 2017 to discuss recent research on the cultural response to earthquakes and tsunamis. Participants will engage each other through facilitated discussions inspired by brief summaries of submitted papers and question prompts provided by the organizers. Together, participants will interrogate the concept of “seismic culture.” Proceedings may form the basis for an edited volume.

This workshop is sponsored by the University of Washington’s  Global Innovation Fund (Office of Global Affairs), College of Engineering Strategic Research Initiative, Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering, and iSchool.
