Witnessing Nuclear Weapons Tests



Starting in September 2019, I research a transnational history of knowledge, investigating how activists construct and circulate knowledge. The study will examine the anti-nuclear movement during the Cold War, focusing on what I call witness activists and how they used their knowledge to oppose nuclear weapons tests in the Pacific, both within the network of disarmament activists and to a broader public. The investigation ties into multiple fields of research, including: history of knowledge, history of movements, nuclear humanities and witness studies.
