"Studying historicities and materialities of a disaster : the Cyclone Pam case"

International Workshop
Materialities and emotions in times of disasters.An anthropological perspective.

Events such as “natural” and technological disasters, development projects implying displacement and destruction of territories, environmental crisis and territorial upheavals in general constitute disruptions that induce a series of processes affecting, some temporarily other permanently, people and social worlds in a vast array of aspects.This workshop proposes to examine, from an anthropological point of view and through ethnographic data, two sets of interconnected dimensions: the material and the immaterial.
