Radioactive Landscapes

A two-day symposium with Blue Carlsson, Shannon Cram, Tomoki Fukui, Ried Gustafson, Jessica Hurley, Manu Karuka, Mary X. Mitchell, Ila Nako, Tiara Na’puti, Juliana Hu Pegues, & Ella Weber

Through performance, research presentations, and discussions based in the local and the trans-national, Radioactive Landscapes will illuminate the entanglements and scale of both our shared radioactive reality and the capacity to change it.

Day One – 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST

Join us for a reading of the play Burning Vision, by Marie Clements, a Métis playwright based in Vancouver, British Columbia performed by NYU students. This groundbreaking play traces the origins and effects of the atomic bombs dropped in Nagasaki and Hiroshima and establishes the cross-border scope of the event’s concerns in an expansive and poignant mode.

Location TBD

6-8pm with reception

Day Two – 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM EST

Scholars and researchers from various communities and institutions will gather to discuss and present on issues of nuclear policy and testing, uranium mining, atomic bombs, nuclear energy, and nuclear waste. Lunch will be available.

Participants include: Manu Karuka, Juliana Hu Pegues, Tiara Na’Puti, Mary X. Mitchell, Tomoki Fukui, Shannon Cram, Jessica Hurley, Ried Gustafson, and members of the research group Nuclear Princeton.
