Social Science Research Council
In the days immediately following September 11, 2001, the Council invited a wide range of leading social scientists from around the world to write short essays for an online forum, After September 11. Written against two-week deadlines when it was difficult to come by sure knowledge in a time of quickly changing circumstances, the forum’s essays would be downloaded millions of times and used extensively by teachers and journalists.
A decade later, contributors to the original forum were asked to reflect on what they wrote and to explore what has changed and what remains the same since those harrowing times. The result is this extraordinary digital collection of new essays, 10 Years after September 11. Short and written in a style that is accessible to both academic and non-academic readers, the essays offer deep, expert analysis of developments since 9/11 from the perspectives of the social sciences.
Teaching Resource for High School and College Classrooms
Using the SSRC’s “After September 11” Essay Collection
Young people are trying to make sense of the terrorist attack on September 11th and its aftermath.
These events have created an extraordinary “teachable moment” to engage students in discussions about the global context of these attacks, the options for U.S. government and allied responses, as well as the potential consequences of terrorism. This teaching resource aims to provide teachers with the tools to seize on this “teachable moment.”
At the same time that working with these essays sharpens students’ analytical, reading and writing skills, using the work of international experts in the field of sociology, political science, economics, anthropology, history and geography exposes students to various worldviews, a central component of a well-rounded education.
