September 11 Digital Archive
Organized by the American Social History Project at the City University
of New York Graduate Center and the Center for History and New Media
at George Mason University, this project uses electronic media to "collect,
preserve, and present the history of the September 11, 2001 attack in
New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania and the public responses to them."
This site consists
of work submitted as responses to the tragic events of September 11,
2001. It is intended as a permanent memorial. The images, words, video,
and sounds submitted from all over the world represent not only what
we have lost, but also begin to confront the changed world in which
we are all going to have to live. The site continues to grow.
