Abstract

This framing essay, for a special issue of Cascadia Chronicle on Hazards, offers reflections on the the relationship between “hazards” and human culture: if “culture” ordinarily pertains to that which is known, created, and controlled by humans, in what senses may natural hazards, be they forest fires or earthquakes, be said to be cultural phenomena?
