A People’s Atlas of Nuclear Colorado – two online events

Sept. 14 Tuesday 11am – 12:30pm Eastern

“A People’s Atlas of Nuclear Colorado” Project Demo / Launch
Join us for the public launch of “A People’s Atlas of Nuclear Colorado, a digital public humanities project that documents and interprets nuclear geographies and legacies of the Cold War. The Atlas draws together background information, archival materials, accessible scholarly essays, and artist interventions into the legacies of the domestic Cold War. Grounded in the specific location of Colorado and its nuclear materials and ecologies, the Atlas allows users to explore the US nuclear complex and its many scales of operation, relational geographies, and troubling future.

Sept. 21 Tuesday 5:30pm – 6:45 Eastern

“Spatial Justice as Research Practice: Public Scholarship and the Politics of Mapping In/Justice”
This panel brings together researchers engaged with a diverse array of recent spatial humanities projects to consider the conceptual, practical, and political dimensions of their work. What practices of data collection and interpretation might guide the creation of spatial platforms about (in)justice? What publics are envisioned and assembled by these projects? What roles can design play—infrastructurally, graphically, and experientially—to trouble distanced consumption and foster recognition? And finally, what practices of collaboration, coordination, and (anti-) institutionalization have been developed that further, enact, and clarify the work’s underlying liberatory goals? Join us for a discussion of three projects: Detours: A Decolonial Guide to Hawai’i (Hōkūlani K. Aikau & Vernadette Vicuña Gonzalez); Separados/Torn Apart (Alex Gil); and A People’s Guide to Nuclear Colorado (Sarah Kanouse & Shiloh Krupar).
