Sammanfattning

Researching the literary dimension of the “nuclear” narrative in Eastern-European and North American writing practices gives an opportunity to distinguish not only the local/global features of the nuclear “Other” implementation in the context of researching ecological memory and nuclear identity formation in the post-Cold-War societies but also the new concepts, methods for analysis and forms, launched by the new “nuclear” age.
The “original” nuclear criticism (posted by Derrida “No Apocalypse, Not Now: Seven Missiles and Seven Missives, 1984) seemed to be fading (due to the fact that the Cold War was considered to be over) and resulted in ecocritical movement. Nevertheless, Chernobyl as well as other “nuclear energy” events, and nuclear energy in general, changed the way we think about nuclear criticism, which has proved the launch of new nuclear criticism with its methodologies of literary analysis.
My presentation will demonstrate the transformations of “nuclear energy” concept - from “the politicized Chernobyl” (regarded as a tomb of the Soviet regime, the “alternative history”, the Soviet self-destroying science, as a peace of propaganda policy, a factor of national identity formation) to “slow violence of the nuclear”(“Atom for Peace”, “Sarcophagus”, “the Exclusion Zone”, “cancer death”, “Zone culture”) - in writing practices about “Chernobyl” within the last 30 years (actually covered by the post-Chernobyl experience).
Basing on “hyber object frame” (T.Morton), “intergenerational memory” studies (S.Lindsay), “collective narrative” (N.Bekhta) and through the psychoanalytical lens, such approach to “nuclear” subject formation and nuclear phobia as key concepts in the contermporary nuclear narratives encourages to discuss what a new nuclear criticism might look like today and reframe the “provincialized” nuclear narratives.
