Different Americas: Resituating American Identity in the Post 9/11 Third Worldian Classroom

 
Mursed Alam (Author) Dhritiman Chakraborty (Author) Anindya Sekhar Purakayastha (Author)
Synopsis

On 11th September, 2001, the world changed. Across the globe, people viewed how the two iconic towers of World Trade Center collapsed creating tremendous hue and cry that percolated almost in every sphere of intellectual lives. What followed is history. Its resonance was felt in far off places in Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries. This book is an attempt to measure the pervasiveness of that event in different registers of political movement, cultural reactions, gender oppression, relentless militarization, etc, that led to global socio-political turmoil and economic melt-down. The idea of America also underwent unprecedented paradigm shift post 9/11. This book anthologizes these diverse responses and shifts from the global south to reconfigure and re-historicize the American Adam in an interactive and agonistic space. These essays collected in the volume would interest scholars, academics working in American Studies in the post-9/11 milieu to re-inscribe American identity in the mindscape of the global south.
