Abstract [en]

The overall aim of this paper is to contribute to discussions on enactment as the premier contemporary response to uncertain futures. Realistically simulated disasters is an emerging feature in contemporary public preparedness exercise programs. The purpose of such simulations is to foster public vigilance and initiative by way of immersive experiences of future disaster. This new mode of experiential learning calls for new analytical concepts that take into account the dynamic relationship between the materiality of experience and the experiencing subject. Therefore, in this paper I propose an analytical vocabulary derived from recent interjections in art theory, film studies, and human geography. More specifically, I make use of, and extend, the notions of “haptic space” and “haptic sense” as elaborated by Bruno (2014), Fisher (2003) and Marks (2015). I apply these concepts to make sense of my empirical encounter with public simulation centres in Japan and Turkey. Finally, I discuss some implications of the haptic perspective.
