Sažetak
The study analyzes the representations of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the US in contemporary American literary and cultural production, focusing in particular on the work of Jonathan Safran Foer, Art Spiegelman, Don DeLillo and Thomas Pynchon. What can be observed in the 9/11 archive are two structuring forces that emerge as fundamental. On the one hand, the 9/11 event was defined by the centripetal force of US nationalism. The reconstitution of national homogeneity after 9/11 was supported by interpretations of the event that relied on the logic of what LaCapra calls "the myth of founding trauma, " that, tied up with the social practices of mourning, bound national community together and worked to set it off from nonnational/ terrorist/immigrant others. On the other hand, the various processes of economic globalization exploded the limits of the presumably national event and connected it to a multitude of sub- and trans-national histories. The study argues that, by centering on non-national contexts for 9/11, it is possible to approach it as a symptom of the globalization processes that destabilize the limits of the national community and necessitate its reconstitution in the global context.
