AMST 268 - American Culture in the Atomic Age

Cross-Listed as ENVI 268  
Since the development of the first atomic weapon, nuclear power has come to define the American and global political and cultural landscape. Fantasies of annihilation and ruin not only define the contemporary political imaginary but also obscure the past and delimit notions of time, space, and futurity  Join us as we trace contemporary U.S. history and environmental policy and the stakes of “wastelanding” through art, culture and activism. Spring semester only. (4 Credits)
