Nuclear Futures

This one-off event, supported by the CSS and the Institute for Social Futures, and led by an interdisciplinary team of Lancaster University PhD students, will bring together academics with other stakeholders to explore our past, current and future relationships with nuclear power in the North West of England. It centres on a one-day event in late October 2021, in which participants will take part in a creative exploration of radiation and nuclear power in and around Lancaster and Cumbria. Nuclear Futures will culminate in the creation of various artefacts including, a radiation map, and other creative images and words on the topics of nuclear energy, radiation and contamination. The organisers will host an initial artefact presentation event in December on campus, ahead of the public display of some of the artefacts at The Storey in January 2022.
