From the Cuban Missile Crisis to Today: Nuclear Weapons 60 Years On

Thursday, September 21, 12:00pm-1:00pm, Grebel Gallery

Speaker: Cesar Jaramillo

In the 1960s, the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the spectre of nuclear war close to North American shores, the number of states testing nuclear weapons increased, and at the same time there was rising international pressure to ban nuclear testing and a nuclear non-proliferation agreement was signed. Where are we at with nuclear weapons and non-proliferation 60 years on? Cesar Jaramillo, Executive Director at Project Ploughshares, will engage these important questions. Cesar’s research areas include nuclear disarmament, the protection of civilians in armed conflict, emerging military technologies and conventional weapons controls.

Hosted in the Grebel Gallery, participants will be able to view the current exhibit, Trinity, Then and Now by Mary Kavanagh.
