On Sept. 11, 2012 at 4 PM, American Culture Studies and Washington University Libraries will host an opening for "Remembering 9/11: An Exhibit" at Washington University's Olin Library in Room 142. Dr. Wayne Fields, Lynne Cooper Harvey Distinguished Professor of English, American Literature, and American Culture Studies will make opening remarks and introduce the exhibit. Following the
remarks a reception and exhibit viewing will take place in Washington University's Olin Library on Level 1.
The physical exhibit features a few items from University Archives and material collected for "Remembering 9/11," a cultural archives project exploring 9/11 memory at the university and in the
culture as a whole. The project was launched by American Culture Studies on the tenth anniversary of Sept. 11, and is an ongoing effort to collect artifacts that reveal 9/11's impact both then and now, including interviews, written reflections, speeches, oral histories, and original works of art.
