Hiroshima, Fukushima, and Beyond: Borders and Transgressions in Nuclear Imagination

event poster
Hiroshi Yoshioka, Professor at the Kokoro Research Center in the Graduate School of Art and Letters at Kyoto University, focuses on several different images and narratives related to nuclear power, radiation, explosion, and nuclear disasters in the context of postwar Japan. They include visions inspired by atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, the diffusion of a legend hiding a possible atomic bombing, and images representing both hopes and fears about nuclear experiments and construction of nuclear power plants during the period of postwar economic growth after the 1950s.

Reinventing Normal: New Technologies for Empowerment

All of us have things we are good at, things we aren't, and things we'd like to do but they are hard for us for whatever reason. The idea of "disability" carries with it the idea what cannot be done. How is technology changing that? How is technology changing the idea of what we can or can't do? These four speakers from U-M address the ways in which technologies are empowering individuals in their lives, changing the idea of what is a disability, and literally reinventing normal.
