Abstract:

This essay critiques the main responses to 9/11 by US intellectuals and analyzes how these reactions reinforced a determined ignorance of the consequences of US economic, foreign, and military policy and a further depoliticization of the culture in general. As a class, faculty have the resources--material and intellectual--to make a serious contribution to progressive political and social change in the world. They need to start putting those resources to work.
