International Tsunami Symposium | Bali-Flores 21-25 August 2017
Disaster sciences, with emphasis on earthquakes and tsunamis had been increasingly approached through naturalistic and empirical views that also influence how sciences of human affairs are deployed. Human evolved in a rapid pace and in ways unimagined decades back. The virtual realities of digital generation and social media, the diminishing role of geographic borders due to migration, the decentralizations versus centralization of government structures responded straight forward to the technologies developed in reducing tsunami risks. Technology have been shaping the society, as society continuously shape technology as cultural artifacts. We encourage scientist who studies on tsunami from the perspective of anthropology, sociology, psychology, history, politics and economics as well as multi-disciplines and inter-disciplinary approaches to continuously reduce tsunami risks on community to present their research in this session. We intends to allow more space for social sciences on tsunamis to be critically involved in today’s tsunami science discourses.
