In October and November 2017, the Environmental Humanities Center organised the Nuclear Waste Weeks in cooperation with Anna Volkmar (Leiden University) and Kyveli Mavrokordopoulou (CRAL, EHESS).
Nuclear waste is one of the major unsolved challenges of our time, raising an array of questions, from the possibilities and politics of storage and disposal, over deep time, to toxic sovereignty. In this series, we will grapple with the environmental, aesthetico-political and ethical dilemmas that emerge from the out-of-scale temporalities induced by radioactive matter that haunt our own era but also countless generations to come.
If you couldn’t attend our events or would like to re-live the experience, read the report on our Nuclear Waste Event here, and a blog post on the excursion to a nuclear waste research center and art exhibition on nuclear waste in Mol, Belgium here.
