How Do We Think About Nuclear Weapons?

Friday, March 24, 2017 - 12:00pm

Most people born after the late 1980's have grown up without thinking much about the threat of nuclear war. Now, in an unsteady political climate, fears about nuclear weapons are beginning to rise again. For those of us who have not given much thought to nuclear weapons for most of our lives, important questions must be asked: How should we think about these weapons? What do nuclear weapons mean for the nature of interstate conflict? And how can we create a safer world in the future?

Join us for a brief presentation on the theory and strategy of nuclear weapons, followed by a discussion on what can — or should — be done in the future to minimize the dangers of nuclear weapons. No knowledge about nuclear weapons is necessary to attend. We hope that you’ll join us!  Lunch included! Please RSVP to:

Hosted by Radius; and Nuclear Weapons Matter, Student Co-Coordinators: Luisa Kenausis, Nuclear Science & Engineering, Political Science; and Jake Hecla, Nuclear Science & Engineering.
