Event

Gregory Button: The Culture of Disaster
When disaster strikes, a ritual unfolds: Experts, bureaucrats, and journalists rush to the scene; real-life personal tragedies play out in a barrage of media coverage; and confusion and uncertainty reign on the ground. Gregory Button, author of Disaster Culture, offers a holistic account of the political dynamics of uncertainty, explaining how corporations, state agencies, social advocacy organizations, and other actors attempt to control disaster narratives, including the Exxon-Valdez oil spill and BP's Gulf disaster. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
