Reflections on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident: Toward Social-Scientific Literacy and Engineering Resilience

This e-book specializes in nuclear engineering schooling within the post-Fukushima period. It used to be edited via the organizers of the summer season institution held in August 2011 in college of California, Berkeley, as a part of a collaborative software among the collage of Tokyo and UC Berkeley. prompted via the actual relevance and value of social-scientific techniques to varied the most important elements of nuclear expertise, specified emphasis was once put on integrating nuclear technology and engineering with social technological know-how. The publication includes the lectures given in 2011 summer season tuition and extra chapters that hide advancements long ago 3 years because the twist of fate. It offers an enviornment for discussions to discover and create a renewed platform for engineering practices, and therefore nuclear engineering schooling, that are crucial within the post-Fukushima period for nurturing nuclear engineers who have to be either technically efficient and depended on in society.

Narrative as Virtual Reality: Immersion and Interactivity in Literature and Electronic Media (Parallax: Re-visions of Culture and Society)

Is there an important distinction in perspective among immersion in a online game and immersion in a film or novel? What are the recent probabilities for illustration provided by way of the rising expertise of digital fact? As Marie-Laure Ryan demonstrates in Narrative as digital Reality, the questions raised through new, interactive applied sciences have their precursors and echoes in pre-electronic literary and creative traditions. previously a tradition of immersive ideals―getting misplaced in a great booklet, for example―we have gotten, Ryan claims, a tradition extra fascinated by interactivity. coming near near the assumption of digital fact as a metaphor for overall paintings, Narrative as digital Reality applies the innovations of immersion and interactivity to increase a phenomenology of interpreting.

Ryan's research encompasses either conventional literary narratives and the recent textual genres made attainable by means of the digital revolution of the earlier few years, equivalent to hypertext, interactive video clips and drama, electronic set up artwork, and desktop role-playing video games. Interspersed one of the book's chapters are a number of "interludes" that attention solely on both key literary texts that foreshadow what we now name "virtual reality," together with these of Baudelaire, Huysmans, Ignatius de Loyola, Calvino, and science-fiction writer Neal Stephenson, or fresh efforts to supply interactive artwork kinds, just like the hypertext "novel" Twelve Blue, via Michael Joyce, and I'm Your Man, an interactive motion picture. As Ryan considers the destiny of conventional narrative styles in electronic tradition, she revisits one of many vital concerns in sleek literary theory―the competition among a most likely passive interpreting that's taken over through the area a textual content represents and an lively, deconstructive analyzing that imaginatively participates within the text's creation.
