Course Long Title

9/11 in Literature and Film


This course examines a wide range of literature, film, and other art that represents the September 11 attacks and their aftermath. Students consider the many ways in which ideas of national belonging intersect with practices of racial and other exclusions in the public cultures of mourning and memorialization that frame the idea of "9/11." Although the focus is on texts that engage with concepts of post-9/11 American culture, students also consider these events and their meanings in global contexts.
