Marxist and Psychoanalytic Approaches to the Culture of 9/11

By now it is clear that the attacks of September 11th have provided grist for the culture industry mill, spawning a variety of theoretical, literary, and cinematic production. This panel seeks to analyze these cultural productions from a specifically Marxist and/or psychoanalytic perspective. That is, panelists may do a Marxist or psychoanalytic reading of a particular book, movie, etc., or they may do a Marxist and/or psychoanalytic explanation about the industry of 9/11 culture in general.
