Barnard Center for Research on Women presents a conference on the effects of catastrophe on cities, their inhabitants, and the larger world, and how we can address the politics of terror with which states react to their vulnerability.
Friday-Saturday, October 14-15
Miller Theater and Wood Auditorium, Columbia University
This conference, convened ten years after September 11, 2001, aims to explore the effects of catastrophe and to imagine more life-affirming modes of redress and reinvention. In a series of presentations and conversations, an international group of artists, writers, and activists will imagine creative responses to disaster and initiate a new collective memory of the events of September 11.
Speakers include Ariella Azoulay, Nina Bernstein, Hazel Carby, Teddy Cruz, Ann Jones, Dinh Q. Lê, Shirin Neshat, Walid Raad, Saskia Sassen, Karen Till, Clive van den Berg, Eyal Weizman, and narrators from the September 11, 2001 Oral History Project at Columbia. Co-sponsored with the Center for the Critical Analysis of Social Difference at Columbia University.
