  • Hiroaki Daimon, Visiting Scholar

    Visiting Scholar

    University of Delaware
    Newark, DE 19716

    Biography

    ​Dr. Daimon is a visiting scholar from Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University, Japan. His dissertation concentrates on disaster volunteering and proposes that there is “a circuit of affirming debt." Daimon's current research focuses on the effectiveness of support from volunteers, especially in long-term recovery, through a comparative analysis of U.S. and Japanese cases and by conducting “action-research” in collaboration with survivors in the village of Noda, Iwate, Japan which was seriously damaged by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Daimon is also re-theorizing the concept of “collective trauma” originally proposed by Kai Erikson through the use of fieldwork and text mining and by discussing the meaning of the “things” and surroundings that were lost in the natural hazards. Daimon's final area of focus delves into the risk perception paradox in disaster science.
