Nuclear energy’s challenges are frequently described as having a significant “social” dimension—a negative perception of nuclear energy by the public. In a significant and growing base of scholarship, researchers—historians, political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, and science and technology studies scholars—have used a diverse, rich, and increasingly sophisticated set of theoretical and methodological approaches to examine the work of practitioners in nuclear organizations.
This panel – based on a recent Nuclear Technology Special Issue on the Nuclear, Humanities, and Social Science Nexus -- aims to explore how research findings and insights from the humanities and social sciences can be used to shape and meaningfully inform the work of practitioners and policy makers in the nuclear energy sector and its corresponding areas of research and practice.
