Event Details

Join Mary Kavanagh, and authors Christina Cuthbertson, Lindsey Sharman, Jayne Wilkinson, to hear readings from this new publication. This free online event is mounted in conjunction with the recent U of C Founders’ Exhibition “Mary Kavanagh: Daughters of Uranium,” and is co-hosted by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, in partnership with Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery.

“Daughters of Uranium” considers the legacies of nuclear production, cultures of militarization, and ecological end times. Derived from the chemical sciences, the term “daughters of uranium” refers to the radioactive decay chain of naturally occurring Uranium (U-235 being the crucial element for sustaining a nuclear chain reaction) while evoking generations born into an uncertain future.
