Join Washington University's American Culture Studies program and the University Libraries for the opening of "Remembering 9/11,"at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, in Olin Library Room 142.
The "Remembering 9/11" exhibition is a cultural archives project exploring 9/11 memory at the university and in the culture as a whole. It was launched on the tenth anniversary of September 11 and is an ongoing effort to collect artifacts that reveal 9/11’s impact both then and now. Included are interviews, written reflections, speeches, oral histories, and original works of art. The exhibition will remain on display in Olin Library through September.
Wayne Fields, Ph.D., the Lynne Cooper Harvey Distinguished Professor of English, American Literature, and American Culture Studies, will make opening remarks and introduce the exhibition. A reception and exhibition viewing follow in Olin Library’s Grand Staircase Lobby and Ginkgo Reading Room (Level 1).
