Cultural Productions of 9/11

The latest issue of Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture is now online, and you can read it here. The issue is called "Cultural Productions of 9/11," and my friend Kara Thompson and I co-edited it and wrote the introduction together. We were fortunate to get fantastic contributions from a range of brilliant scholars. When we first put out the call for papers (a year and a half ago), we had nearly 100 strong proposal submissions; it was difficult to decide on the contents, but it is now very rewarding to see all the thematic overlaps and reoccurring tension points that appear throughout the issue as it turned out.
