Annotation: The MIT Comparative Media community created "re:constructions - reflections on humanity and media after tragedy" in order to analyze, explore, challenge, examine, analyze, debate, share, and host dialogues about the influence, role, and effects of the media after the attacks of September 11. There is a very conscientious introduction to the project and the site is divided into communications, interpretations, definitions, representations, repurcussions, expressions, and conversations. Educational materials on the site include suggested discussion topics, activities, and projects. Links to materials written by those outside the MIT community are included in each section.
Excerpt: re:constructions is an on-line resource and study guide, designed to spark discussions and reflections about the media's role in covering the events of 11 September 2001 and their aftermath.
