With Daniel Libeskind and Michael Arad
Mon Sep 19, 2011

How is New York coming to terms with the legacy of September 11 ten years later? Scholars and practitioners from many fields examine this question through the lenses of architecture and urban planning, the viewpoints of Muslim citizens, and health and safety. Architect of the master plan for the site Daniel Libeskind and Designer of the September 11 Memorial Michael Arad will discuss the spatial implications of memory. Anny Balkalian (Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center, The Graduate Center, CUNY) and Cyrus McGoldrick (Council on American-Islamic Relations) contend with civil rights and the status of Muslims in the US today. Scottie Hill (Social Welfare, The Graduate Center, CUNY), Zachary Shemtob (Criminology and Criminal Justice, Central Connecticut State University), Norman Groner (Protection Management, John Jay College of Criminal Justice), and Susan Opotow (Criminal Justice and Social and Personality Psychology, The Graduate Center, CUNY; Sociology, John Jay College of Criminal Justice) address the risks of disease from the cleanup and anxiety about technology.
