Culture of Fear: Post 9/11 Culture
What changed with regard to lived experience, media and culture in the new millennium? How have a War on Terror and significant changes in privacy and surveillance in the U.S. been imbricated into American culture in the aftermath of and response to 9/11? How did artists in literature, film, music, digital media and video respond to the attack and its impact on American life? In this course we will look at critical theory, rhetoric and art since 9/11 and ask questions about cultural consumption during America since then.
