The Nuclear Ghost: Atomic Livelihood in Fukushima’s Grey Zone
Thu. April 7 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Prof. Ryo Morimoto is a first-generation scholar from Japan. His scholarly work addresses the planetary impacts of our past and present engagements with nuclear things. Regionally centered on Japan, his research creates spaces, languages, and archives through which to think about nuclear things, along with other not immediately sensible contaminants, as part of what it means to live in the late industrial and postfallout era. Since 2020, Morimoto facilitates an undergraduate-led project, Nuclear Princeton, which highlights the underacknowledged impacts of Princeton’s nuclear science and engineering on Native lands, communities, and beyond.
