James Harding on Stages and Context of 9/11

In yesterday’s episode of DTLT Today, I had the pleasure of sitting down with University of Mary Washington professor James Harding from the English Linguistics and Speech Department. Professor Harding specializes in avant-garde theater and has published far and wide on the topic. For this episode we focused on a course he teaches at UMW titled “Stages and Contexts of 9/11: Dramatic Literature and Contemporary History.” Given the 10 year anniversary of this historic event, our conversation touched upon attempts to define terrorism over the last decade; ways in which artists have attempted to frame this event; as well as considering the technical and ideological contexts of terrorism in a globalized world.
