Karena Kalmbach: Revisiting the nuclear age. State of the art research in nuclear history

Abstract

This article provides an overview of recent research developments in the field of nuclear history,
focusing on Western European and Northern American research perspectives and topics. The analysis
of these developments reveals under-researched areas which merit more focus from humanities and
social sciences scholars in order to better understand the role of nuclear matters in twentieth century
history and their implications for the twenty-first century. The areas which require more intensive
research include: nuclear waste, the role of social scientists in constructing the nuclear age and the
shifting narratives of nuclear vices and virtues.
