CfA - Nuclear revival and legacies conference - Paris - 21-22 October 2024

Apologies for cross-posting!

  Dear Colleagues, 

We are inviting submissions to the international conference on “Nuclear Revivals and Legacies” that will take place on 21st-22nd October 2024 at the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, Champs sur Marne (Paris). This conference aims to bring together social science and humanities perspectives on nuclear issues in an unprecedented context. Sociology, history, philosophy, anthropology, geography, political science, economy, and Science and Technology Studies approaches can complement each other to provide new insights into developments in this sector. 

Short Abstract: In the context of climate change and geopolitical tensions over energy supply, calls for a nuclear « revival », « relaunch » or « renaissance » are reviving and reconfiguring justifications and promises that have accompanied nuclear technology since the post-war years. Nuclear futures are framed by categories, practices and materials inherited from the past and perpetuated until today. What happens when the nuclear industry is simultaneously faced with issues of decline and renewal? How does this configuration shed light on the challenges of managing infrastructures that are presented as crucial in the context of climate change?

Please find the complete call attached to this email.

Abstracts should be submitted before May 31st 2024. Notification of acceptance will be given by mid-June. We very much look forward to receiving your submissions. Please feel free to share this with your colleagues and networks. 

Best wishes,

Martin Denoun (Spiral, Université de Liège) Maël Goumri (LAMSADE, Université Paris Dauphine)  Claire Le Renard (LATTS, Ecole des Ponts ParisTech)  Ange Pottin (ERC project INNORES, University of Vienna)
