  • Editor’s Introduction
    • Abstract: The conference “Disasters in History: The Philippines in Comparative Perspective” was held on 24–25 October 2014, jointly organized by this journal and the Department of History, Ateneo de Manila University, in partnership with the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University. The keynote address that Greg Bankoff delivered in that conference is the lead article in this issue. The articles of Kerby Alvarez, Francis Gealogo, Kristian Karlo Saguin, and James Francis Warren are revised versions of papers presented at that conference. The photo essay of Reynaldo Lita on central Visayan churches damaged by the 15 October 2013 earthquake is also based on his conference presentation. Other manuscript ... Read More

  • Hazardousness of Place: A New Comparative Approach to the Filipino Past
    • Abstract: Over forty years ago, Kenneth Hewitt and Ian Burton (1971, 25) talked about the hazardousness of a place as “a relational concept linking man [sic] and his surroundings.” This hazardousness was a function of both the physical event—its predictability, frequency, rate of onset, intensity, extent of impact, and duration—as well as what we would now refer to as the vulnerability and resilience of the affected population in terms of the level of community resources, the structures of society, the preparedness of its response capabilities, and the adaptability of the culture. Hewitt and Burton (1971) pioneered a human-ecological approach that tried to identify what made living in a specific location precarious by ... Read More

  • Historical Seismology and the Documentation of Postdisaster Conditions:
           The 1863 and 1880 Luzon Earthquakes
    • Abstract: On 29 September 1865 a letter signed by Agapita Francia was addressed to the head of the Junta Central de Socorros de Manila, appealing for financial assistance due to the miserable situation that she and her sisters Leandra, Juana, and Dorotea found themselves as a result of the earthquake of 3 June 1863. The orphaned sisters reported that the family’s house in Santa Cruz, Manila, which they inherited from their deceased parents, suffered massive destruction, which made it uninhabitable for over a year. With no other assets, they had been left in misery and poverty, a state of existence from which presumably they did not suffer before the earthquake. The letter of appeal that they submitted to the central ... Read More

  • Instrumentation and Institutionalization: Colonial Science and the
           Observatorio Meteorológico de Manila, 1865–1899
    • Abstract: The nineteenth century witnessed major developments in science. Colonizers and colonial territories acquired scientific knowledge and technologies from different countries in Europe, particularly from France and Germany. The second half of that century saw the emergence of a new mentality concerning science, particularly regarding the use and essence of scientific instruments. During this period instruments flooded major economic and academic centers and secured the recognition of science as a primary epistemological framework in achieving societal progress (Camba 2010, 120). As Michael Adas (1989, 263) argues, the introduction of such key instruments allowed Europeans to imagine and explore the natural world of ... Read More

  • Romancing Tropicality: Ilustrado Portraits of the Climate in the Late
           Nineteenth Century
    • Abstract: Writing on 1 June 1889 as a Manila-based correspondent of La Solidaridad, Pedro Serrano Laktaw under the alias D. A. Murgas1 described the Philippines as overran by a distressing mix of disasters. He states, “I write you . . . under the weight of an overwhelming temperature of 39 degrees in the shade, under the influence of an infected atmosphere, and under the effects of terrible geological phenomena. It is extremely hard to find in any single locality such confluence of disasters like those that afflict us at present” (Murgas 1996, 260). He then lists the disasters: “The cholera epidemic . . . is wreaking grave havoc on the lives of these peaceful inhabitants; . . . horrific fires devouring and reducing ... Read More

  • Typhoons and the Inequalities of Philippine Society and History
    • Abstract: Typhoons, as the offspring of water and air, are powered by heat from the sea, high planetary winds, and their own violent energy. The circulations of the cyclonic winds near the eye may gust to more than 125 miles per hour (mph) (200 kilometers per hour [km/h]), and an entire typhoon can cover the ocean’s surface and dominate the lower atmosphere over thousands of square miles, with giant whirlwinds covering tens of thousands of square miles in the upper atmosphere (Baton Rouge State Times 1985, 1–B). In the Philippines, typhoons and floods cause more annual damage than any other natural hazard. The Philippine typhoon season follows a fairly regular pattern, beginning mid-year and reaching its peak ... Read More

  • Discoursing Disasters: Vulnerability and Gaps in Rationalities
    • Abstract: Every Filipino lives with the realities of recurring disasters caused by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, torrential rains, destructive winds, or storm surges. Whether the life-threatening disaster is from an occasional geological phenomenon or the seasonal disruptions of extreme weather occurrences, Filipinos have built strategies into their ways of dwelling as a coping mechanism. To the extent that Filipino cultures are built around the reality of the regular disruptions arising from nature’s dangerous movements, I agree with Greg Bankoff (2003) in referring to the Philippines as constituted by cultures of disaster. After all the Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world (Gaillard ... Read More

  • Emergency Situations, Participation, and Community-based Disaster
           Responses in Southeast Asia: Gray Areas and Causes for Optimism
    • Abstract: Community-based or participatory development has become increasingly popular. Since its emergence in the 1970s as a counterpoint to top-down, Western-centric models, community-based work has moved into the mainstream and is now widely used by public institutions, corporations, and international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) alike. But the growing acceptability of participatory development has also brought about a critical backlash. Assessing a popular variant, David Mosse (2001) warns that participatory rural appraisal has been deradicalized and now serves institutional, rather than community, interests. Bill Cooke and Uma Kothari (2001) go deeper in their critique, tracing participatory development’s ... Read More

  • States of Hazard: Aquaculture and Narratives of Typhoons and Floods in
           Laguna de Bay
    • Abstract: Hazards have long shaped the configurations of state and society in the disaster-prone Philippines (Bankoff 2003). These historically produced configurations are embedded in the continually evolving relations between state, society, and the natural world. Using the case of aquaculture in Laguna de Bay, this article examines two elements of these relations: the place of hazards in state development schemes and the practices of living with hazards among fish producers. State development schemes in Laguna de Bay carry the modern promise of improvement through the efficient use of lake resources and the control of its processes via technological interventions. These interventions have transformed the landscapes and ... Read More

  • The Politics of Flood Control and the Making of Metro Manila
    • Abstract: In the history of twentieth-century Metro Manila, no disaster has been more politically charged than flooding. Issues of governance, from the national down to the local government, rise to the surface every time the metropolis goes under water. Scholars of late have dissected the dynamics between politics and disasters. Leading the charge is Greg Bankoff (1999, 2003a), whose essays and genre-defining book Cultures of Disaster (2003b) have alerted us to the socioeconomic and political dimensions of disasters. The impact of disasters is not only conditioned by social structures; disasters do impact social and governance structures as well (Bankoff 2003a, 107; Loh and Pante 2015). Other scholars have ...

  • Disasters as Contingent Events: Volcanic Eruptions, State Advisories, and
           Public Participation in the Twentieth-century Philippines
    • Abstract: Published in 2003, Greg Bankoff’s book, Cultures of Disaster, stands out as a landmark publication in disaster studies, especially in relation to the Philippines. The book contains much valuable information on the different kinds of disasters from natural hazards that the country has experienced over the centuries. Bankoff (2003, 152) makes the incisive observation that disasters, far from being simply meteorological or seismic phenomena, “are embedded in the political structures, economic systems and social orders of the societies in which they take place. Above all, they are historical events in that hazards are diachronic happenings, they occur as part of a sequence or process that determines a particular ... Read More

  • Catholic Churches in the Visayas and the Earthquake of 15 October 2013

In the history of architecture and its technological achievements, old construction methodologies formed part of the evolution of design and styles. Builders developed construction technologies through time to correct a structure and enhance its strength. Seismic considerations established the strength of a structure. Building technologies were constantly changing to create earthquake-responsive buildings. The Our Lady of Light Church in Loon, Bohol, built in 1755, completely collapsed ... Read More

  • Disasters in History and the History of Disasters: Some Key Issues
    • Abstract: Disasters occur in history and are historical events, but the writing of their histories is never a straightforward matter. Like other events, disasters have a complex history, and the task of writing them requires access to sources, which come in the form of geological records and in the human documentation of these events. By training, historians rely on the latter sources, which began to improve in terms of quantity and reliability in the nineteenth century. The invention of instruments particularly in the twentieth century has enabled scientific precision in the recording of hazards and disastrous events. Despite the production of better records in recent times, narrating disasters and their histories is ... Read More
