The consequences of Sept. 11 is the subject of a class taught by University of Michigan lecturer Jonathan Marwil.

For many the death of Osama Bin Laden produced a sense of patriotism they hadn’t felt since the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks. There is no doubt that 9/11 has become part of America's collective memory.

University of Michigan history lecturer Jonathan Marwil has been teaching a class on Sept. 11 for the past few years. He’s interested in the consequences of the event: culturally, socially and politically. He joined Eight Forty-Eight to talk about the issues discussed in his class.
