Janet Farrell Brodie

Janet Farrell Brodie is a professor of history at Claremont Graduate University. She is completing a book about the process by which the Trinity Site in New Mexico, the site of the first atomic bomb detonation, became a national historical landmark. She is also working on a book examining institutional and individual engagements with the radiation from atomic weapons in the first decade after World War II when civilians in wide-ranging fields and institutions across America grappled with the mysteries of nuclear radiation and with the new imperatives of national security secrecy surrounding anything to do with nuclear energy.
