Dr. Matthew Warshauer
September 11, 2016 will mark the 15th anniversary of the worst terror attacks in American history. Join us for an evening of discussion with CCSU’s Professor of History, Dr. Matt Warshauer as he focuses on 9/11 and memory.
Having studied and talked about the Civil War anniversary in great depth, he wondered how the history and memory of 9/11 will change over time as the generations that experienced the country’s greatest terrorist attack move farther and farther from the actual event. 9/11 is a moment in time, yet the political and world issues that face America continue to define and be defined by the attack. How, then, do we remember 9/11 and how will that change as the 9/11 Generation fades? These are the defining questions that Warshauer asks people to consider.
