Environmental Studies Discussion Series

The Environmental Studies Book Club Discussion Series and Robertson Library Talks is organizing the discussion “Chernobyl and Beyond: Past, Present and Future of Nuclear Energy.”

The event will start by showing a short video about the Chernobyl accident to reflect on the legacy of this event.  We would also like to touch upon the popular HBO miniseries “Chernobyl” and how its release in 2019 may have influenced public awareness about the Chernobyl accident, and more generally, attitudes towards nuclear power. Next, we will move to a more general discussion about the future of nuclear energy in Canada and beyond. 

Dr. Yuliya Rashchupkina, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science/School of Climate Change and Adaptation at UPEI, will join the discussion to provide insights about the historical and political contexts of the Chernobyl accident.

Date and time: October 30, 2019 at 5:30pm

Place: Robertson Library, room 312

All are welcome!
