Disaster Perceptions and Responses in Times of Global Upheaval
生境 : 激变世界中的风险感知与灾难应对

Workshop topic

Disasters oftentimes lead to the reorganization and reformation of the living conditions in times of global upheaval. At the ten-year anniversary of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, we call for a more extensive and reflexive anthropological investigation of the local people’s risk perception and disaster response, through the angles of vulnerability analysis and resilience building. Rooted in and relying on the ethnographic research of the transformation of the local life world, this workshop hopes to promote cross-cultural research on topics of disaster origins and eruption, risk perception and response, and post-disaster relief and recovery. The workshop aims to examine the predicaments, challenges and opportunities entailed in the human lived experience so as to explore new knowledge prospect for sustainable development.

处在一个激变的世界之中,灾难的发生往往会重塑特定的生境。在汶川5.12大地震十周年之际,我们越发需要从脆弱性(vulnerability)辨析与弹韧性(resilience)营造的角度,来就具体地方或特定族群的风险感知与灾难应对展开深入的人类学研究,进而对当代政治-经济权力格局下灾后重建的经验教训进行反思性的总结。为促进人类减灾防灾事业的进步与人类学灾难研究的发展,本工作坊主张灾难人类学应基于激变世界中地方生境的重塑之田野民族志考察,来对灾难的生成与爆发、风险的感知与应对,以及灾后的恢复和重建等问题展开跨文化跨社会的比较研究,从而在理论探讨上为我们深刻地理解人类生活世界在可持续性方面所面临的种种困境、挑战和机遇,拓展出新的知识经验图景。议题:人文视野下的灾难与激变,生活世界中的弹韧性营造, 风险与脆弱性的人类学辨析, 激变世界中的灾难记忆与时代焦虑, 人类学灾难研究的理论探索与田野实践
