Abstract:How do we advance the interdisciplinary aspects of the fields of disability studies and disaster studies by featuring and creating new evidence-based knowledge previously not shared with either field? And ultimately how will we weave disability cultures and disability-inclusive designs regarding persons with disabilities to be interwoven within the field of disaster studies? This article will share the beginning of a collaborative project between the Center on Disability Studies, USA, and Institute for Disaster Management and Reconstruction, China, aimed to develop a participant framework anticipated to be implemented as a symposium at the 36th Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Disaster (#PacRim2021). In addition, this article will provide presentation discussions of participant personal and expertise feedback relating to the development of the symposium topics.
