Nuclear Awareness: Literary Dimensions

Research output: Conference materialsAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

Our dependence on energy against the background of environmental change and climate change agenda results in reconsideration of energy and energetic sources which leads to shaping our societal values, priorities and behaviours. Under such circumstances the discussion of nuclear energy and nuclear-related issues go beyond sciences and engineering and encourages the development of energy-focused researches (which shape energy humanities as an interdisciplinary field for researching energy within humanities and social sciences). Such approach defines how energy and energy-related issues are considered, estimated, accepted and represented in the contemporary energy-dependable society.
Such critical and multidisciplinary reconsideration of nuclear energy can be implemented with the help of nuclear awareness which can be a useful tool for developing the critical societal assessment skills on nuclear energy-related issues in the context of sustainable development and for shaping the social attitude towards nuclear technology, nuclear energy policy and nuclear safety culture. Nuclear awareness can be a base for providing narrative toolkit of the contemporary nuclear discourse in terms of implementing critical thinking skills towards nuclear fiction/non-fiction narrative, regarded as an archive of the Nuclear Anthropocene.
