“Making Meaning of 9/11 in New York Ten Years After”
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.
