Commemorating the three-year anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, five Fort Hays State University instructors contributed to the September Project, a national event in which citizens gathered on Sept. 11 at public libraries to discuss and share ideas about democracy, citizenship and patriotism.
As part of the talks, roundtables and performances, Dr. Carrie Nassif (NAH-siff), assistant professor of psychology, presented the lecture "Psychological Theories of Intergroup Conflict and Solutions."
" I think there's a lot of people who still have Sept. 11 on their minds or still think about it in some form," Nassif said.
Four other FHSU instructors spoke at the gathering, including Dr. Chapman Rackaway, assistant professor of Political Science; Dr. Art Morin, director of the Master of Liberal Studies Program; Dr. Paul Faber, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences; and Dr. Carol Patrick, chair of the Psychology Department.
" Like it or not, the next generation of Americans will be defined by their reaction to and perspective on Sept. 11, 2001. We all have a defining moment that will shape our view of the world," said Rackaway.
