The UPenn Graduate School of Education's Hub for Equity, Anti-oppression, Research, and Development (HEARD) invites you to join our community for an interactive panel to broaden our understanding of the ongoing impact of 9/11. Participants will learn more about U.S. engagements in wars over the last two decades, the consequences and costs of these wars, and how and why we need to teach about war. Speakers will share research, pedagogical tools, and curriculum resources that help us move beyond teaching about 9/11 to teaching beyond it.

Panelists include:

  • Ameena Ghaffar-Kucher is a senior lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. She is the director of the Teaching Beyond September 11th curriculum project.
  • Stephanie Savell is a public anthropologist who researches militarism, security, and civic engagement in relation to the United States post-9/11 wars. She is co-director of the Costs of War project at Brown University’s Watson Institute.
  • Natassja Gunasena is the Patricia C. and Charles H. McGill III Visiting Assistant Professor of International Studies at Trinity College.
  • David Vine is Professor of political anthropology at American University in Washington, D.C., and the author of The United States of War: A Global History of America’s Endless Conflicts, from Columbus to the Islamic State (University of California Press, 2020).
