Historia: Det nukleära 1900-talet

Do you want to learn more about the history of nuclear technology and its uses in the late 20th century and how social, cultural, and political dynamics respectively shape its designs and uses?


The Nuclear 20th Century introduces several aspects of the history of nuclear technology focusing on the late 20th century, when the nuclear weapons and power expressed an ambiguous state of utopian hope and dystopian despair. During the decades following the end of the Second World War, nuclear technologies had political, cultural, and material consequences across the globe. 

The Nuclear 20th Century offers an overview of nuclear humanities, familiarizing the student with some of the major themes and issues in Science and Technology Studies (STS), environmental history, and cultural history. The course draws on an interdisciplinary body of humanities and social science literature, mixing theoretical material with more empirically oriented studies through a mix of classics, new scholarship, and guest lectures from leading scholars.

The course is relevant for history or social science teachers, technicians, and people in international relations and foreign administration. It can also be of interest to a broad public that wants to learn about the nuclear in history.
