The editorial team of the Innovative Technology and Management Journal (ITMJ) conducted a webinar on “The Epistemological Non-sense of Disaster Studies” held on July 26, 2021 via Zoom. The resource person was Dr. JC Gaillard, one of the associate editors of ITMJ. He is a professor at the School of Environment of the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
