Abstract Carson Fellow Istvan Praet betreibt Feldforschung in Esmeraldas, Ecuador. Sein eigentliches Interesse galt der Pflanzenwelt, doch in den Gesprächen mit den Einheimischen kristallisierte sich klar ein Thema heraus: Naturkatastrophen. Er erforscht die Reaktionen und Gefühle, die damit im Zusammenhang stehen und wie sich somit der Alltag gestaltet. Carson Fellow Istvan Praet ist Experte für Lateinamerika, Formen des Animismus bei Ureinwohnern und der Beziehung zwischen Anthropologie und Wissenschaft.
Carson fellow Istvan Praet studies the cultural perception of natural disasters, based on his dissertation about those perceptions within Chachi indigenous groups located in the region of Esmeraldas, Ecuador. He realized that earthquakes, floods, and other disasters were a common topic in the indigenous conversations, inspiring him to study anthropological conception of catastrophes. Praet is now extending the project to include a comparison of indigenous and scientific notions of disaster. Dr. Praet is a lecturer in anthropology at Roehampton University in London.
