SEADCORE: Disaster Resilience and the Value of Local Traditional Culture


Bandung, 6 February 2019
Host: Resilience Development Initative and Padjajaran University


Description Description Description


Increasing occurrences and intensity of natural disasters means more emphasis is needed to highlight the importance of disasters as well as community resilience, especially in disaster-prone areas. Local disaster management efforts must take local traditional cultures into consideration in order to effectively sustain and reduce the impact of disaster hazards. Local culture can largely contribute towards livelihood resilience of local communities, and since disaster-prone Indonesia harbor rich and diverse traditional local cultures, the topic of this guest lecture is now more relevant & important than ever.

SEADCORE is a refined concept developed by our colleagues from Lancaster University. It investigates the intersections of traditional knowledge and community resilience to inform policy co-design and recommendation that interface Disaster and Risk Management (DRM) and UN’s Sustainable Goals.

The speakers for the lecture and workshop will be as follows:

  • Dr. Christine Mortimer (Lecturer on Organisational Behavior, Nottingham Trent Business School): She is a qualified academic with proven research, teaching, academic leadership and administrative skills. Her research interests have focused on the interconnections between person-place-identity particularly in terms of developing resilience in both the individual and the community.
  • Dr. Malé Luján Escalante (International Lecturer, Lancaster University): Her research explores Digital Ethics, in the intersections of Philosophy of Technology, FSTS and Research through Design, specifically in the Health and Emergency Response domain. She possesses sustained expertise designing methodologies that combine ethnography, play, speculative research, fiction design and socially responsive methods to catalyze knowledge exchange and participatory processes.
  • Dr. Dicky Muslim (Head of Research Center for Environmental Geology, Engineering, and Geological Disaster – Associate Professor): His ample experience in researching and analyzing disaster occurrences, as well as his academic background in geosciences, serve as a solid foundation to provide vital information regarding disaster preparedness in areas that are especially prone.
