9/11: One event, many meanings
The 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers prompted an intensification of the debate around Islam in the Netherlands, while in the United States they were seen as a brutal disruption of its national security utopia. Is an event like 9/11 always a radical turning point that marks the start of social and political change? Sociologist Thijs van Dooremalen researched the framing of 9/11 in the media, politics and policy of the Netherlands, the United States and France. He will receive his doctorate from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) on Wednesday, 11 September 2019.
