Ball, Anna – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2008
September 11, 2001 generated diverse responses from around the world, but for many subjects located in "the West," an enduring perception surfaced in the aftermath of the attacks: that 9/11 revealed the fragility of the "Western Self" as a secure identity.

Farley, Lisa – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2007
