The Human Dimensions of Disaster
SMTC COFFEE HOUR:
THE HUMAN DIMENSIONS OF DISASTER
November 18, 2004; 3:00 p.m.
102 Weaver Building
Moderator: Susan Squier, Brill Professor of Women's Studies and English
What are the human dimensions of disaster, whether natural (earthquakes), man-made (the attacks of 9/11), or result of Hollywood magic? Participants from a range of disciplines will discuss the impacts of disasters on people, particularly considering the ethical and social implications disasters raise for us as individuals and as a society. An interdisciplinary discussion will follow.
