Dr. Christopher Thompson, Linguistics
Bōsai ([Tsunami] Disaster Prevention) Tourism in Tarō, Japan: Ten Years After the Disaster in March 2011
Dr. Thompson will discuss how unlike stereotypes associated with many post-disaster tourism sites, Bōsai Tourism in Tarō builds around local place-based practices and traditional community knowledge that not only provides a satisfying touristic experience but gives local residents tangible social, economic, and political goals to strive for as they embrace the future, designed to transform local tragedy into a local triumph.
