Washington State University Tri-Cities will host a panel discussion titled “In the Atomic Field: The Reach of Hanford” on Tuesday, April 18 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. on campus in the East Auditorium and via Zoom.
Moderated by anthropologist and author Mark Auslander, this panel brings together science and technology studies focused anthropologist Pedro de la Torre III, historian and author Robert Franklin, and artist Glenna Cole Allee to discuss the past, present and future of Hanford site. The panel will discuss how historic narratives expand when dissenting perspectives are acknowledged and entered into the record and how the inclusion of formerly marginalized voices impact discourse about the history and future of the Hanford site. Audience participation will be welcomed in a question and-answer format.
The panel convenes to accompany the exhibition currently on display in the WSU Tri-Cities Art Center, “Hanford Reach: In the Atomic Field”, an installation that explores the paradoxical histories of Hanford and reflects the complexities of personal and collective memory. Glenna Cole Allee will sign copies of her recently published monograph (Daylight Books, 2021).
WSU Tri-Cities is located at 2710 Crimson Way in Richland.
