Situating Preparedness Education within Public Pedagogy
Kitagawa, Kaori
Pedagogy, Culture and Society, v25 n1 p1-13 2017
Both "disaster preparedness" and "public pedagogy" have been broadly defined and diversely utilised. Preparedness has been dealt with in disciplines such as civil engineering, the sociology of disasters, public health and psychology, rather than education. Recently, inquiries into the learning and teaching of preparedness have increased in the field of education. Some position preparedness education within the field of public pedagogy. However, conceptual discussion as to how and why the two fields are associated has been limited. The primary aim of this paper is to fill this gap by drawing on public pedagogy literature that conceptualises "publics" and "pedagogies". In doing so, the paper attempts to respond to call for "Problematizing Public Pedagogy".
