For obvious reasons, it’s a very slow week for homeland security-related events in DC.
But for those of you like me who have been asking yourselves, “What can hermeneutics teach us about the war on terror?”, it appears that the college English professors of the world are smart mobbing at the Marriott Wardman Park for the Modern Language Association’s annual conference, which will include sessions such as:
– Representing 9/11
– Arab Pop Culture Speaks Back
– Pop Culture and the War on Terror
– Critique and Terror: The New Americanists and Cultural Politics Today
I suppose “Deconstructing the Home(less)land” will have to wait until next year.
