Dr. Kate Brown will speak about how the world’s first nuclear weapons in the US and USSR spawned model cities and environmental calamity. She argues that the demands of nuclear secrecy and safety reshaped the American and Soviet landscapes by militarizing and compartmentalizing them in order to cordon off secrets of nuclear technologies and the spillage of nuclear waste.
