Prof Chad Diehl Publishes Article with TIME

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Last week, TIME published Chad Diehl’s article, “‘Hiroshima' Has Become Shorthand for the Atomic Bombings. Here's Why We Shouldn't Overlook Nagasaki.” In the article, Chad argues that “‘Hiroshima’ has become shorthand for the historical experience of both cities, eclipsing the unique story of Nagasaki’s rise from the ashes. Moreover, “Hiroshima” has muffled the voices of the Nagasaki hibakusha (“the bombed,” the term for atomic-bombing survivors), who have struggled for more than seven decades to gain equal attention for the trauma and aftermath of their bombing.”
