Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

"Gorleben Soll Leben!" - German Anti-Nuclear Power and Waste Protest Through Images and Artworks in the Wendland 1977-Present
by Diak, George, M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2020, 99; 28259923
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis will examine the role of Gorleben in the broader context of the German anti-nuclear movements taking place between the 1970s and the 2010s through various images, posters, and other forms of media. This work will show that the protests taking place in the Gorleben area were unique because of how activists utilized the surrounding environment of the village, cultural and historical events, and concepts of gender to redefine and reinforce German anti-nuclear activism.
