Within the different types of science museums, those dedicated to disasters (mostly, earthquakes) aim to foment in the general public a greater awareness of risk. Many museum exhibits arise from exchange with the scientific field, explaining knowledge in terms that everyone can understand. In this seminar we will focus on the features and strategy of these institutions, their educational programs to both expert and non-expert public and their role in the local and global context of the management of risk.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Disaster Research Network series.
