This collection seeks to expand current dialogues on the impact of repressive policies instituted by the US in the post-9/11 era. We are looking for articles from various disciplinary perspectives that explore how those policies have impacted, not only the realization and interpretation of human rights within the United States, but also abroad over the past decade.
Pieces may address the negative impact of 9/11 policies on certain communities in the US and abroad, as well as responses by those individuals and groups to that oppression.
Some topics to consider:
-The complex position of 9/11 detainees in the United States from so-called “stateless” nations
-How 9/11 policies have impacted dialogues on homosexuality in the U.S.
-How the War on Terror has impacted peoples in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
-Parallels between women’s rights and the War on Terror in the US, and women’s groups’ responses to those policies
-The impact of 9/11 policies on border control, impacting other immigrant populaces in the United States
-How 9/11 has redefined the notion of terrorism and who the “terrorist” might be
-The US and its position in the United Nations
-US relations with Pakistan and the impact on the Pakistani people
-Aesthetic responses to 9/11 oppression from certain communities within the US, including the use of visual art and music
