Peter C. van Wyck is a researcher, writer, Professor of Communication Studies, and Director of the Media Studies graduate program in the Department of Communication Studies at Concordia University. He is an interdisciplinary scholar with an abiding interest in the theoretical and practical relations between culture, nature, environment, landscape, memory and ecological disaster. His most recent book, The Highway of the Atom (McGill-Queens University Press, 2010) – winner of the 2011 Gertrude J.

He is now working on a new book that addresses nuclear media, apology, justice and the future.
