Atoms for Peace and the Nuclear 1950s in the Americas

Christopher Dunlap is a Nuclear Security Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation, Stanford University. His book project, “Parallel Power Play: Nuclear Technology and Diplomacy in Argentina and Brazil, 1945-1995”, developed from his dissertation, focuses on the fundamental role of nuclear energy technology and diplomacy in shaping modern Brazil and Argentina and their bilateral relationship. His talk is adapted from the first chapter of his dissertation, which discusses the efforts by Juan Perón and Getulio Vargas to invest in nuclear energy.

Chris received his Ph.D. in History from the University of Chicago, and also holds a B.A. in History, B.S. in Biochemistry and M.A. in history from the University of Virginia.

The 11:37 to Moreno and Other Journeys in the Buenos Aires Suburbs

Samuel Brandt is a PhD Student in Geography at UCLA. His book project, “Uruguay, The Little Country in the Middle: Journeys Between Superlative and Mundane” examines how an ideal of governance by and for the middle-class and its constituent social experiments impact everyday life in Uruguay at local, national, and transnational scales. His talk poses preliminary questions for research on the growth and identity of the Buenos Aires suburbs, focusing on their relationship with Peronism.

Sam holds a B.A. in Geographical Studies from the University of Chicago.
