As we reflect on the 34th anniversary of Chernobyl and its relevance to the current public health crisis, Prof. Emlyn Hughes is making plans to teach a new course in Columbia's summer session. The course will be entitled Chernobyl.
Today is the 34th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident. As we remember the victims and consider the lessons Chernobyl still has for all of us, including in the midst of the current public health crisis, our Founding Director Prof. Emlyn Hughes is making plans to teach a new course, entitled Chernobyl, in Columbia's upcoming summer session. The course will be listed in the Directory of Classes next week and will begin on May 26. It will utilize a multi-disciplinary approach with science, history, and literature all coming together to help students build an in-depth understanding of the accident and its aftermath.
