Speaker: Jacob Darwin Hamblin
America’s Global Gamble with Peaceful Nuclear Technology
Location: Whirled Pies Downtown
Monday, March 13, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
About the Speaker:
Jacob Darwin Hamblin writes about the history and politics of science, technology, and environmental issues. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Science, Salon, and The American Scientist, and his peer-reviewed essays have appeared in Isis, Diplomatic History, Environmental History, Technology and Culture, and many other academic journals. He has published dozens of book reviews.
Hamblin’s most recent book is The Wretched Atom: America’s Global Gamble with Peaceful Nuclear Technology. It focuses on the promotion of nuclear “solutions,” especially in the developing world, from 1945 to the present. This history is drawn from archival work at the International Atomic Energy Agency and many other sources. It draws attention to unfamiliar connections among environmental rhetoric, nuclear technology, petroleum interests, and arms deals.
The History Pub Lecture Series is a collaborative endeavor between the U of O History Department and the Lane County History Museum.
