Radioactive waste is topic of community forum

Coastal Carolina University professor Ken Rogers will give a talk titled "Your Place or Mine: Global Highly Radioactive Waste Disposal Policy," on Wednesday, March 11 at 7 p.m. at the University's Waccamaw Higher Education Center in Litchfield. The discussion is free and open to the public.

This is the sixth of eight sessions in the University's "Creativity and Conflict" dialogue series, sponsored annually by the Board of Visitors of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.

Rogers, professor of politics and chair of the department of politics and geography, will lead a discussion on the renewed interest in nuclear generated power as a viable energy source and the various methods for the disposal of spent nuclear fuel. His talk will address the need for a global approach to cope adequately with the increasing inventories of highly radioactive waste.

Rogers joined the University faculty in 2006. He earned a Ph.D. from American University in Washington, D.C., where he specialized in Soviet studies and international relations. His areas of expertise include homeland security and energy security implications of highly radioactive waste. Rogers' publications include "Calculated Risks: Highly Radioactive Waste and Homeland Security," "Understanding American Government" and "Preparing for the Model United Nations: an Inside Track to Success."
