This set of GeoContext slides addresses the colonialist motivations of European settlement of volcanic regions, and the effects of colonial power and indigenous knowledge on the understanding and record of volcanic activity. These slides provide cultural and social context for understanding resources and hazards related to volcanoes, research stations, and researchers involved in advancing volcanology. Each slide is accompanied by notes in Powerpoint (not visible in preview) and additional information in the companion guide.
