Disaster Encounter – disaster studies

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Course overview
Disastrous Encounters explores the complex interaction between human beings and their environment by examining incidents in which those disasters have proven destructive or fatal to humankind. By the end of the class students will be able to:
Explain the scientific principles behind “natural” disasters, including cyclonic weather, global climate change, volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, river flooding, famines, and diseases.
Analyze to what extent a given disaster is in fact “natural” at all, but rather was either caused by or exacerbated by human actions.
Draw connections between different types of disasters, recognizing that major disasters often produce predictable secondary disaster effects.
Write strong analytical essays.
Read documents critically, especially in terms of the author’s agenda and the author’s likely biases.
Research Paper
Students must a research paper of about 6-8 pages. This paper should explore the theme of natural disasters, and should preferably try to answer one of the following three questions:
1) to what degree did human decisions/actions cause or exacerbate to a particular “natural” disaster?
2) to what degree was a given natural disaster interrelated with other disasters occurring before, during, or after the given disaster?
3) in a given country (you pick), what natural disasters are most likely to threaten that country in the future, and what can be done to prepare against the danger?
The highlighted one is the most related out to the questions that I would like to have the research paper to be about.
