Tiivistelmä: Researching the “nuclear” narrative in North American writing practices in the post-Chernobyl times gives an opportunity to distinguish the local/global features of “Atom for Peace” initiative implementation in the context of researching ecological memory and nuclear identity formation in the post-Cold-War societies. The paper is focused on studying the singularity of “Atom for Peace” initiative in depicting “the Chernobyl nuclear explosion” in North-American fiction works such as F.Pohl’s Chernobyl (1987), K.Hesse’s Phoenix Rising (1994), C.Smith’s Wolves Eat Dogs (2004), A.White’s Radiant Girl (2008) (all of them describe the post-Chernobyl times but for K.Hesse’s novel, nevertheless written under its influence, as K.Hesse mentioned). This approach involves the process of finding out the specificity of literary representation of concepts “Atom for Peace”, “nuclear power plant explosion”, “the Exclusion Zone”, “cancer death”, “nuclear phobia” in North American writing practices about “nuclear energy” within the last 30 years (actually covered by the post-Chernobyl experience). Such transcontinental vision of “the largest nuclear accident” as the transformation of “Atom for Peace” Initiative into “nuclear phobia” allows studying the transformations of ”nuclear narrative” in the aspect of distinguishing local/global dimensions of Nuclear Identity formation.
