Contemporary Perspectives on the Nuclear World

75 Years after Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Expressions of Interest:
International conference, 1–3 October 2020, Sydney

To mark the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Honorary Associate Dr Yasuko Claremont (Department of Japanese Studies) and the organising committee are planning a conference to be held from 1–3 October 2020 in Sydney around two broad themes: the socio-political and cultural interpretations of the impact and legacy of the bombing; and the current challenges posed by the development of nuclear weapons and the expanding industrial uses of nuclear power.

Suggested session topics include:

  • generational experiences
  • female experience as victims and activists
  • art, cinematic and literary responses
  • civil activism
  • post-Hiroshima nuclear testing and accidents.

The call for papers will be published later this year. We would like to receive expressions of interest now. Please contact the organising committee for more information:
