STS Forum on the 2011 Fukushima / East Japan Disaster

Building a Transnational Research Agenda and Strategy for Engagement through a Social Scientific Understanding of Disasters and the Disaster Sciences

University of California Berkeley
11-14 May 2013


Through the support of the US National Science Foundation and generous contributions of the private Support Group for the STS Forum, we are holding the inaugural meeting of the “STS Forum on the 2011 Fukushima/East Japan Disaster,” as hosted by the University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Science, Technology, Medicine, and Society (CSTMS). This is an academic forum for discussing the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear accident and the larger 2011 East Japan disaster. The goal of this forum is to build a transnational research agenda and community centered on this disaster, and to extend the social scientific and humanistic understanding of disasters and the disaster sciences. For the inaugural meeting, we also invited scholars studying other disasters.

While this was a pre-circulated papers workshop, with participants selected based on abstracts received, we also extended an opportunity to all viewers to read and comment on the publicly posted manuscripts. Please view all manuscripts and comments via the link provided above.
