Re-presentations of 9/11: A WorkshopRe-presentations of 9/11: A Workshop
Saturday, 10 September 2011, 2.00-5.00 p.m., Room 2.44, O’Rahilly Building
This workshop provides a forum in which to reflect on 9/11 from a variety of perspectives (historical, literary, filmic, social, artistic, theoretical etc.). Presenters will speak for approximately 20 minutes each, either in the form of papers or reflections/comments on 9/11, its representation (or ‘unrepresentability’) and legacy after ten years. Ample time for discussion has been included so as to have the opportunity to exchange ideas in a smaller, less formalized setting than that of an actual conference, and to explore how different cultures, disciplines and individuals have been affected by the traumatic event.
