Event description

Description

Science historian Kate Brown's painstakingly researched book Manual for Survival. A Chernobyl Guide to the Future reveals a conscious decision by the then Soviet government to downplay and suppress the true extent of harm caused by the April 26, 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion. Come and hear her talk about this and more.

What forces can empower survival and the art of living on a damaged planet? Her research has taken her to Europe’s largest wetlands—the Pripyat Marshes at the border of the Ukraine and Belarus—a site of multi-generational experiences of suffering from revolution, wars, genocide, and chemical and nuclear catastrophe.
