Chernobyl: Nuclear Narratives And The Environment
What really happened on April 26, 1986? This course will introduce students to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, its consequences, and its representations across a range of cultures. Texts will be drawn from (non-)fiction, poetry, film, TV, video games, VR, and other media, as we consider the labyrinth of Chernobyl's mythology through a comparative lens and as a global phenomenon. Culture meets ecology, science, history, and politics. Fields trips and guest speakers. The final class project will involve an installation at McCabe Library.
