With the onset of the atomic age in 1945, geneticists increasingly spoke out about how nuclear fallout and radiation impacted heredity and reproduction. By the 1960s others began to draw attention to how another post-war chemical—the pesticide DDT—might impact the hereditary future of mankind. Scholarship discussing post-World War II scientific activism focuses almost exclusively on males, without little attention paid to women who served as public scientists or the impact gender may have played in gaining public trust and influencing policy makers.
The seventh annual SustainIU Week, organized by the IU Bloomington Student Sustainability Council and its member organizations, will focus on “Water Scarcity in the 21st Century”.
Several exciting events are planned for the week, including a keynote lecture by National Geographic photographer James Balog on Wednesday, February 18 at 7:30 PM in the IMU Whittenberger Auditorium.
