A&S 259 Sociology of Disaster

This course examines a variety of disasters from those that are "man-made," to "natural disasters." Societal responses to disasters, ranging from moral and political protest movements, on the one hand, to legal actions and legislative efforts on the other, will be examined, along with the scientific and technological responses to these disasters, and the ethical issues that these spawned.
