Call For Proposals: “Making Meaning of 9/11 in New York Ten

CFP: “Making Meaning of 9/11 in New York Ten Years After” – Sept.
16-17, 2011 (New York City, New York, USA)

To mark the ten year anniversary of the attack on the World Trade
Center, St. John’s University announces a multidisciplinary conference
exploring the enduring effects of 9/11 on the people, institutions,
and civic identity of New York and its metropolitan region. The
two-day conference, held on September 16-17, 2011, will be held at,
and have the special vantage point of, St. John’s University’s
splendid Manhattan campus directly adjacent to Ground Zero. By
enlisting a variety of perspectives from scholarly and professional
fields, the conference hopes to make connections between the local
impact of 9/11 and the broader, even global implications of the
changes that have been felt, witnessed, and in many cases initiated by
New Yorkers in the aftermath of the attack.
