Picador Professor Porochista Khakpour Reflects on 9/11 in the New York Times

New Picador Professor Porochista Khakpour has recently been engaged in a number of activities which reflect upon the 10-year anniversary of 9/11.

Most notably, Prof. Khakpour, along with fellow 9/11 Op-Ed writers Tom Brokaw, Joseph S. Nye, and Daniel Libeskind, is part of the “Op-Ed Moment” video series on the New York Times website. Here is a video of her discussing the difficult making of “My Nine Years as a Middle-Eastern American”, a 9/11-related NYT Op-Ed from 2010.

Additionally, granta.com published an excerpt from a longer essay by Prof. Khakpour entitled “Today is a Sunny Day.”

She will also participate in a discussion with a number of artist before the premier of Awakening, a Kronos Quartet performance of a “music meditation on the anniversary of 9/11” in New York City later this week.
