Teaching the Day After: An Assessment of American University Pedagogy in the Wake of September 11, 2001.

Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v33 n3 p350-367 Sep 2002
Surveyed university faculty shortly after the September 11 attacks to investigate how they engaged with their students following these events. Classrooms became safe spaces for expressions of emotional vulnerability and public grieving. Some professors offered themselves as moral guides, striving to forestall the expression of hostility. Others avoided the subject of the attacks. Results highlight the challenge teachers face in defining the very meaning of the university. (Contains references.) (SM)
