Workshop 'The Transculturality of Historical Disasters: Governance and the Materialisation of Glocalisation', March 3-5, MMB
The third and concluding workshop of A6, “Cultures of Disaster”, addresses the transculturality of historical ‘natural’ disasters in South Asia, from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century.
In line with the two previous workshops “Hybridity of Historical Disasters: Nature, Society, and Power” (Beirut, March 2010) and “Learning from Disaster from Antiquity to Early Modern Times: Knowledge and Experience, Flow and Blockage” (Heidelberg, December 2009), the upcoming workshop addresses the relationship between nature and society in Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia in a comparative and transcultural historical perspective.
