The Nuclear Culture Research Day brings together researchers in nuclear culture from the Goldsmiths Art Department MARS doctoral research programme and members of the Nuclear Culture Research Group to form an intensive day of sharing knowledge, mentoring and critical feedback. Artist and Curatorial researchers will share their artistic nuclear practices in an interdisciplinary environment with scholars and practitioners from across the arts and humanities, and the nuclear sector.

This workshop will investigate theoretical ideas and artistic practices concerned with radiological deep time. From nuclear materilaity and forensics, landscapes of mining, test sites, and waste storage sites. The session will focus on the challenges of decolonising the nuclear, rethinking nuclear landscapes at home, and the mythologies of distant contamination and mining.

Organised by Ele Carpenter with PhD researchers Warren Harper, Bridget Kennedy and Andy Weir, and students from the MFA Curating programme.

The event is supported by CHASE, and is open to CHASE researchers.
Places are limited, so booking is essential. Please email Ele if you would like to participate.
