This year marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. This also marks two decades of the tumultuous "Post-9/11 Era," and the end of 20 years of U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan.
The Mershon Center invites the Ohio State community and public to join us online for an all-day event reflecting on the 9/11 attacks and the many profound ways they continue to shape our world. The first panel of speakers will include personal recollections of Sept. 11. Contributors include people who were serving in Congress, the military, the CIA, presiding as a federal judge, living in New York and Washington, D.C., and attending grade school here in Ohio.
Other sessions will address cultural, strategic, and political implications; prevention of and recovery from violence by those affected by 9/11 and its consequences; and 9/11's enduring legal legacy.
