Did nuclear politics influence biomedical research after the end of
World War II?  This course attempts to answer that question by
focusing on the U.S. and the U.S.S.R.  Readings include microhistories
and ethnographies of key nuclear labs, as well as cultural histories
of science in the atomic age.  We also will consider how scientists
studied and talked about groups exposed to nuclear fallout, beginning
with the survivors of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and moving
forward in time.
