- I created a syllabus on nuclear security that can be accessed here. For more context, check out my blog post here.
- I'm facilitating a group using the syllabus this summer and anyone is welcome and encouraged to join! This is a fun, low-commitment way to learn more about nuclear weapons-related issues and meet people with similar interests. Register here.
Nuclear security is an incredibly important and neglected issue. I created a syllabus that is intended to provide an overview of the nuclear security landscape. It offers insights into the history of nuclear weapons use, the science behind the atomic bomb, the potential effects of nuclear use, nuclear weapons as an intersectional issue, and more. By the end of this course, the hope is that you have developed a deeper understanding of the complex problems that nuclear weapons pose and that you have knowledge and resources that will allow you to further engage with these issues if you so choose.
I designed the syllabus with the intention that university groups and other EA groups can use it as a resource to facilitate courses on nuclear security, but it can also be used for individual, personal learning.
Nuclear Security Course - Summer 2023
I plan to facilitate a group using the syllabus this summer, running roughly from the end of May to the end of July. The expected time commitment is 1-2 hours of reading per week, and 1 hour of discussion on a weekly basis over Zoom. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of issues related to nuclear weapons, and especially for those who are consdering a career path related to reducing nuclear risks.
