      How Did They Survive? The Aftermaths of Chernobyl

      We face a legacy of incomplete knowledge about Chernobyl’s public health consequences. Accounting for these is not a closed matter, but hinges on what kinds of research and investments are applied, and over what timescale. A needed reckoning with complex truths can pave the way for better responses to future disasters.

      Note: While the Museum is temporarily closed due to public health concerns, the remaining lectures in the Great Catastrophes series will be delivered virtually: enjoy these lectures from the comfort of your own home. If you have registered for the lecture(s), you will receive an email on the Monday before the lecture with a link and instructions on how to connect to the lecture. We are using the BlueJeans platform—you don't have to download anything and will even be able to ask the speaker a question, just as if we were still in the Harrison Auditorium.
