Event description

Description

Join two Birkbeck authors for a discussion of two key moments of crisis in recent US history, the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island (1979) and Hurricane Katrina as it devastated the US Gulf Coast (2005). Grace Halden’s Three Mile Island: The Meltdown Crisis and Nuclear Power in American Popular Culture and Anna Hartnell’s After Katrina: Race, Neoliberalism, and the End of the American Century (both published this year) use these events to explore larger narratives of self-destruction, environmental degradation, and displacement. There will be plenty of time for discussion after the talks.

This event is part of Birkbeck Arts Week 2017 - see the full programme here.
