Description

Terror, Culture, Politics: Rethinking 9/11 takes a critical look at the politics of American culture in the wake of the 2001 terrorist attacks. The volume takes as axiomatic-and, therefore, as demanding careful scrutiny-the connection between culture as creative expression and culture in the broader sense of the beliefs, values, and habits that members of a society hold in common. Coming from a wide array of disciplines-art history, history, literature, media studies, law, and political science-the contributors ask not so much how 9/11 changed American culture but how our existing cultural patterns, in such separate but linked domains as the media, public art, and political thought, shaped our responses to it.show more
