*Lunch will be served*
Dr. Kazi (Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Stockton University) considers what it means to call 9/11/2001 a day which we must “Never Forget.” Drawing from a study with undergraduate students, she argues that most Americans are actually deeply forgetful about the events of 9/11, and especially unaware of the US role in creating the conditions for such an attack. Tracing the legacy of American foreign policy practices alongside racism within US borders, Kazi shows how widespread forgetfulness has been the raw material for anti-Muslim animosity.
