Bushfire and everyday life : examining the awareness-action "gap" in changing rural landscapes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The notion of "everyday life" is used critically to examine an apparent "gap" between bushfire risk awareness and preparedness amongst diverse landholders in rural landscapes affected by amenity-led in-migration in southeast Australia. Three dilemmas of everyday life are found to underpin the attitudes : costs (monetary and time values), gender roles, and priorities. Using a mixed-methods research approach, the simultaneous cultural construction and material nature of bushfire in everyday life is mapped out through landholders' narratives and actions that embody living with fire on the land
