The Atomic Age from Hiroshima to the Present - A Symposium
Introduction by Norma Field
As we enter the eighth decade of the nuclear era, how can we think about—and act upon—the relationship between
nuclear weapons and nuclear energy? The reality of Fukushima, following upon the 25th anniversary of Chernobyl, gives us new urgency as we explore the atomic age—weaponry and energy, from the Cold War era to our present predicament—as depicted in new documentaries by two women filmmakers, one from the U.S. and one from Japan. At the symposium, panels of experts will join the filmmakers for discussion and Q&A.
