    In this talk, Jordan Pascoe draws on the resources of feminist philosophy to explore how disasters trigger social change – in both progressive and authoritarian ways. By examining how people learn from one another in disaster contexts, and how this learning can shift longstanding practices of collective knowing, she explores how and why disasters generate social change.
