Exploring Directions for Post-Pandemic Disaster Education Through Interdisciplinary Collaboration between the UK and South Korea

Project overview

This project is focused on establishing a sustainable network between leading disaster education research groups in the UK and South Korea. The project involves 11 researchers from education, socioecology, history and social studies of science, providing a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary and intercultural disaster education research. The project builds on collaborators' previous work on disaster education (Lee & Jeon, 2015; Park, 2020), disaster studies (Kang, 2016; Knowles, 2012; Park, 2019) and SSI education (Christodoulou et al., 2021; Lee et al., 2012; Lee & Lee, 2021; Ratcliffe & Grace, 2003) to develop a new conceptualisation of disaster education that integrates the scientific, technological and social aspects of disasters that can guide future research and practice.
