(Previously scheduled speaker Lauren Coodley has had to cancel due to illness.)

Geographer Lindsey Dillon will discuss the broad social implications of nuclear waste and radio active pollution at sites such as Hunters Point and Treasure Island. A Chancellor’s Post Doctoral Fellow in American Studies at UC Davis, Dr. Dillon is the author of several scholarly articles and a member of the California Studies Association Steering Committee. Her talk is based in part on her dissertation completed last year at UC Berkeley.

The session is from 7-9 p.m. at the UC Berkeley Institute for Labor Research and Education, 2521 Channing Way, just east of Telegraph Ave. | Free admission and dinner. | Please RSVP to Myra Armstrong, zulu2@berkeley.edu or 510-643-3012.
