WHAT

Call for papers for the three-day interdisciplinary, international conference “recovering disaster“.

WHEN / WHERE

The conference will take place from Thursday 11 July through Saturday 13 July 2019 at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.

TOPICS

The initial impact of Hurricane Camille tended not to discriminate. Everyone who was hit was hit hard. But later…it wasn’t the hurricane that differentiated; it was the various responding relief agencies that made politically motivated decisions…

Mark M. Smith, Camille 1969: Histories of a Hurricane (2011)

From hurricanes to floods, to the toxic impact of nuclear explosions, while the initial impact is levelling, it is in the recovery effort that social, political and cultural distinctions rise to the surface, exposing prejudice and privilege alike.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The psycho-social impact of recovery on communities
  • The politics of recovery and governmental roles
  • Social privilege and recovery
  • Intersections of race, gender, class and culture in representations of recovery
  • After-lives of recovery: is recovery ever complete?

APPLICATION & DEADLINE

Organizers invite proposals for individual papers, panels or posters. Please send a 300-word abstract and one-page vita by December 15, 2018 to recoveringdisaster2019@gmail.com.

Keynote Speakers: Mark M. Smith (History, University of South Carolina) and Masami Yuki (Human and Socio-Environmental Studies, Kanazawa University).
