About the Course

This course analyzed the major social and political events that are directly related to the terrorist actions of September 11, 2001 in the United States.  Although the course focuses on American society, a world perspective is needed to understand the events of 9/11; thus, a substantial part was concerned with America and its international relations.  We examined the causes and consequences of 9/11 with diversity of perspectives and through a variety of media (books, articles, photography, audio and video).  This course involved plenty of discussion of the key issues and controversies.  Grading was based on five written assignments and class participation. 

The course was offered in the Spring/Summer Semester 2009 (February – June 2009) at the American Studies Center of the University of Warsaw.
