Biofacts of the atomic age: Irradiated organisms of the agricultural and nutritional area in projects of the “development aid”

The research project analyses the semantics and materiality of irradiated organisms in development aid projects during the transfer from Western to non-Western civilisation. It will be shown how biofacts of the atomic age became crystallisation cores of new networks that linked hithero seperated actants (UN-organisations, nuclear scientists, farmers, nuclear reactors etc.) in world regions far apart from each other in conflictual interaction and how thereby different ideas about technicity and naturalness were performed.
