Surfing “contaminated” seas: Life and polluted leisure in the wake of Fukushima’s triple-disaster
This seminar examines how the local surf community in Fukushima deliberate, experience and (re)engage with a contaminated coastline through their leisure practices in post-disaster seascapes. To give texture to the multiple sensory materialities of “pollution” the presentation is accompanied by a collection of short videos produced through fieldwork by our interdisciplinary research team. In doing so the study strives to broaden understandings of doing leisure in increasingly “polluted” times and spaces.
