Ashby Dialogue: 9/11, ten years later

This year’s Ashby Dialogue is titled “Memory at Work: September 11, Ten Years Later.” Dr. David Simpson (University of California, Davis), author of the book “9/11: The Culture of Commemoration,” will give the symposium’s keynote address, “9/11 and the Fate of Strangers,” on Sept. 8, 7-9 p.m., Sullivan Science Building.

During the week, two workshop discussions will be offered: on the historical and cultural context of 9/11, plus on the 9/11 Memorial and the identification of the World Trade Center victims.
