Where were you on 9/11? For many, 9/11 is a traumatic moment that will forever be part of our individual and collective experiences as a nation. But not everyone had the same experience or perspective of the events of 9/11. This course provides an overview of the heated debates around 9/11 that have taken place among scholars, politicians, journalists, and citizens. We will examine multiple perspectives on the "war on terror," including debates over the causes of terrorism, the “clash of civilizations,” civil liberties vs. national security, militarism and patriotism, and immigrant rights and racial profiling. It is strongly recommended, but not required to have taken at least one course in American Culture, Women’s Studies, or Middle East Studies. Course requirements include posting a weekly discussion question, several essays, and a final group project.
