Atoms for Peace in Europe Around the World, Barcelona, 28-29 May 2018

HoNESt researchers Paul Josephson and Matthew Adamson are organising a workshop on Atoms for Peace in Europe Around the World, Barcelona, 28-29 May 2018, See CFP here.

In this conference we shall explore the new public light that was shed on nuclear technology. Scientists and engineers flocked to the Geneva conferences of 1955, 1958, and 1964, enthused to have the chance to exchange information on many aspects of nuclear technology and the nuclear fuel cycle. (The workings and effects of nuclear weapons remained secret.) In magazines, journals, newspapers and films, citizens learned of their efforts. The US, the USSR, and other nuclear powers established carefully managed efforts to propagandize the benefits of nuclear energy to national audiences and to the world at large. Nuclear power in the Atoms for Peace era thus became a product of public-science and public-state interactions.
