This year marks the 70th anniversary of the dawn of the atomic age. The first detonation of a nuclear weapon at Alamogordo, New Mexico on July 16,1945 was followed in short order by the first use of nuclear weapons in war, at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In the months that followed, the scientific community and policy makers in the United States, the USSR, and elsewhere struggled to come to terms with the implications of what they had wrought.

On April 29, three Science and Society concentrators — Eliza Cohen '15, Shelby Wilson '15, and Ke'ala Morrell '15 — presented their senior theses at the University Science Center.
Their presentations, which covered biology education in New York City at the turn of the century, gametogenesis and sex education in deaf high schools, exemplify the concentration's emphasis on new scholarship. Video of their presentations is available.
Every year, a handful of Science and Society concentrators develop, research and write theses based on their coursework in the degree. We'll be profiling each of this year's thesis writers over the next few days.
