Thank you for helping make our Fall Gathering a success! What was to have been a Spring Renewal business meeting and Keynote was rescheduled from May due to Covid-19 descending upon Maine. We were honored to hear keynote Professor Elaine Scarry speak about Thermonuclear Monarchy.A link to her entire keynote zoom presentation is posted on our YouTube channel here. The two minute edit for our Twitter account has also been posted on YouTube.
A very timely piece by Professor Scarry: Memorial Days, the racial underpinnings of the Hiroshima & Nagasaki Bombings (The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.) Check out the virtual roundtable about First Use she co-organized: https://www.publicbooks.org/virtual-roundtable-on-presidential-first-use-of-nuclear-weapons-reprint/
