Literature of 9/11

In response to a number of incorrect reports about my course on the Literature of 9/11 at UNC-Chapel Hill, I published an op-ed in the Raleigh News & Observer. Please also see the statement from the Department of English and Comparative Literature at UNC, the letter of support from concerned faculty, and the public email about my course from the UNC Provost. The UNC Faculty Council unanimously approved this resolution in defense of the course and of broader institutional protections for academic freedom in teaching. Finally, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar mentions the controversy in an article in Time magazine.
