The Apocalyptic Imaginary in (post-) 9/11 Literature and Culture

updated: 
Monday, February 13, 2017 - 12:02pm
ASAP (Association for the Study of Arts of the Present)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

This panel will explore themes and representational strategies of 9/11 and/or the apocalypse in post-9/11 literature and culture (movies, television, painting, music, etc.).

Questions to consider include but are not limited to:

How do artists (broadly conceived) try to capture the singularity of 9/11 as a world historical event?  Alternatively, how and why do they resist notions of singularity, protesting the idea that it was a day after which “everything changed” forever?

How has this historical moment altered our conceptions either human nature or of ecological systems more generally?

How has Islamophobia been encoded in grotesque representations of the Other?
