Nuclear Amnesia: Waking Up to Love the World

April 4, 2018, 7:00 PM

Free

Kathleen Sullivan, 2017 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has been engaged in the nuclear issue for nearly 30 years and has worked internationally as an educator for disarmament focusing primarily on two distinct audiences: young people and atomic bomb survivors (hibakusha). Currently, she is the program director for Hibakusha Stories, an arts-based initiative. As an education consultant to the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, she developed the disarmament education web portal for the UN’s Cyberschoolbus website and co-wrote (with Peter Lucas) Action for Disarmament: 10 Things You Can Do! (2014). She has produced four films on nuclear issues — two documentaries and two projects that focus on art for disarmament.

Cosponsored by the Oak Institute for Human Rights, the Pugh Community Board, Cinema Studies Program, and the Cultural Events Committee.
