Kate Brown: “Dismantling the Plutonium Curtain: Local Knowledge and the Great Soviet and American Plutonium Disasters”
May 16, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
History Associate Professor, University of Maryland, Baltimore
Modern utopias and nuclear wastelands come together in Professor Brown’s “Plutopia” about the first two cities in the world to produce plutonium–Richland, Washington and Ozersk, Russia. New postwar communities of high-risk affluence alongside plutonium disasters and public health catastrophes were thus created on two of the world’s most radiated landscapes.
