9/11 in History and Memory

couvares

Frank Couvares
E. Dwight Salmon Professor of History and American Studies

September 13, 2011

The talk combines my memories of 9/11, especially of my 20th-Century American History class on the day after the attack, and a consideration of the ways in which historians have interpreted the events of that day and the years immediately thereafter. As the readings show, they generally extend the time frame to more than a half-century of U.S. engagement in the Middle East.
