Call for Papers Disasters in History: The Philippines in Comparative Perspective The Department of History, School of Social Sciences, Ateneo de Manila University, and the journal Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints invite papers to be presented in an international conference- workshop on “Disasters in History: The Philippines in Comparative Perspective” to be held on 24–25 October 2014 at the Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City, Philippines. The conference aims to gather historians, climate scientists, and other scholars to present and discuss papers based on new research and perspectives in the study of disasters. Papers that are explicitly historical, ethnographic, and/or comparative in orientation are most welcome. The conference is intended to cover the histories of various disasters brought about by earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons, volcanic eruptions, drought, and other natural hazards as historically experienced by various groups, classes, and communities in the Philippines and other parts of Asia Pacific. We invite papers that offer comparative perspectives on how different societies with differing levels of vulnerability have prepared for, confronted, experienced, and moved on from disasters in different historical periods. Papers dealing with other parts of Asia Pacific are encouraged to relate the discussion to the Philippines. The conference aims to foster closer academic and scholarly ties and relationships between and among scholars in the Philippines and Asia who are engaged in similar and parallel projects that study disasters in history. Selected papers will be included in a special issue of Philippine Studies: Historical and Ethnographic Viewpoints. Other publications may also be planned. Keynote Speakers The keynote address from a historian’s perspective will be delivered by Prof. Greg Bankoff, University of Hull. He is the author of Cultures of Disaster: Society and Natural Hazard in the Ph
