Abstract [en]

The perceived increase in and transformation of societal insecurities necessitates novel approaches for governing societal responses tofuture disruption (e.g. O’Malley, 2008). One such novel approach is the establishing of public disaster simulation centres to ensure avigilant and prepared population. Societal insecurities do not necessarily mean trans-boundary or de-localized modern risks (in Beck’s,2009, sense), but may just as well imply threats to geographically delimited communities, societies, and regions, for example natureinduced(yet social) disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis, and insecurities originating from extreme weather conditions due to climatechange (e.g. hurricanes, heatwaves, landslides, flooding). This paper presents a case of public simulation centres understood as amanifestation of the Foucauldian notion of self-technology, emphasizing, as it does, the modification of individual conduct: Not only skillsbut also attitudes must be aligned towards the overarching goal of preparedness (Foucault, 1988:18). Based on a diverse assemblage ofempirical sources (e.g. individual’s accounts of their simulation experiences, notes from sensuous ethnographic field work, andgovernmental rationalizing of the need for public simulation centres), the paper puts forward an analysis of the mechanisms andtechnologies by which individuals become “resilient”. One overall tentative conclusion is that the sensuous-affective experiences conveyedby the simulation (like excitement, thrill, discomfort, stress) are intended to have an empowering effect on the participants.
