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.
