Vancouver Sunday Meeting: Oscar Zapata - Religious faith amid disasters

Weather-related disasters can make people more religious but it depends on the toll they inflict, suggests new UBC research. If a disaster injures a significant number of people, it can strengthen religiosity among those who are already religious. But if a disaster inflicts mostly economic damage, the opposite effect applies.

Oscar Zapata is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Field Experiments and Public Engagement in the School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) at the University of British Columbia.
