Course Calendar Description: Volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, and droughts have the capacity to uproot and disrupt human lives. So too do financial crises, engineering failures, and disease outbreaks. Disasters are as much a product of culture as they are of nature. They are shaped by political, social, economic, and environmental context. This course uses historical perspectives to explore the reciprocal relationship between people and nature in the production of disasters.
