Nuclear Reimaginings

Project Overview

This micro-site documents the Nuclear Reimaginings series of edited collections that “reimagine”—or interpret anew—various historical nuclear events by creating spaces for collaboration and dialogue across disciplinary and cultural boundaries. Beginning with a special issue of Critical Military Studies to coincide with the 70-year anniversary of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima (2014-15), followed by a revised and expanded edited book on Hiroshima and Nagasaki published by Routledge (2014-18), and a multimedia special issue of Unlikely: Journal for Creative Arts on Maralinga (2014-18). Doing so brings together otherwise disparate approaches to the emerging subfield of the Nuclear Humanities, from disciplines such as anthropology, philosophy, politics, history, cultural studies, and the visual arts.

Although there remains a dire need for further reimaginings, including on Chernobyl and other nuclear events, the Nuclear Reimaginings project has been indefinitely placed on hold as at July 2018.
