Radioactivism

Screening and Discussion on Responses to Japan's Nuclear Crisis
Olin 102 






The tsunami of March 11th 2011 not only devastated Northeastern Japan but instigated an ongoing nuclear crisis, in which the fear of radiation has penetrated the air, ground, food, and water of the entire country. Growing doubt towards the nuclear power industry and governmental regulatory structures has unleashed a new wave of citizen activism and popular protest on a scale unseen in Japan for decades. Yuko Tonohira and Ayumi Hirai of the group Todos Somos Japon will discuss recent developments in the anti-nuclear movement and screen a selection of short documentary films on responses to the crisis.



Todos Somos Japon is a network-building project aiming to connect and support activists in Japan and world-wide. TSJ publishes and translates critical writings in Japanese and English at http://jfissures.org and organizes events and film screenings in the New York area and beyond.

"The African Components of the Columbian Exchange: African Plant and Animal Species in the 18th-Century Atlantic World"


Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium 
Judith Carney

This talk highlights the role of the transatlantic slave trade for the circulation of African plants, animals, and natural knowledge in the Atlantic World. Emphasis is on the significance of slave ships for their circulation and the New World sites where the species were established. Slave ships carried African foodstaples and food animals along with enslaved peoples familiar with their cultivation and husbandry. The discussion illuminates the ways that African introductions and knowledge systems shaped the foodways and environmental history of tropical America.
