The Six Extinctions
Joe Masco, Professor of Anthropology and Social Sciences in the College, University of Chicago
Location: Swift Hall, Room 106 - 1025 East 58th S
Masco is the author of The Nuclear Borderlands: The Manhattan Project in Post-Cold War New Mexico (Princeton University Press, 2006). Through a series of articles, his interest in science and technology, U.S. national security culture, political ecology, mass media, and critical theory have led him to chart the socio-political and socio-psychological transition from nuclear to natural holocaust. This lecture will focus on topics raised through the work in the exhibition.
