Disaster Education

'Race', Equity and Pedagogy

by John Preston

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/01/2012

  $58.30
Using critical race theory and whiteness studies the book argues that information about disasters has always, tacitly or overtly, prioritised the survival of certain groups of citizens above others. Drawing on examples from the UK and the US, from past and contemporary disaster education and popular culture, it considers that rather than being kitsch, naive and ephemeral, such campaigns are central to the way in which states define survival, life and death.
