VPA 1220 - 9/11 in Words and Images

Credits: 4
This course looks at the creative response to 9/11 in art and literature during the decade following the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks. 9/11 elicited a wide array of passionate and conflicting responses across politics, the media, and the arts. Discourse centered on the problem of making sense of such a shocking turn in current events. The course explores creative processes in which the response to 9/11 proved to be an important part of how the West, particularly the United States, attempted to develop an understanding of what took place on 9/11. Analysis and exploration in the visual arts, the literary essay, and the graphic novel will be utilized throughout the semester.
