Smith College to Observe Sept. 11

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. – Smith College will observe the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks with an early morning concert of bells, a noontime moment of silence and a late-day panel discussion about how the world has changed since that day.

All the events are free and open to the public.

At 8:45 a.m., Grant Moss, senior lecturer in music, will provide a 15-minute concert of bells on the college’s carillon. The most ideal place to listen to the music, which is produced by 47 bells covering four octaves, is in the college’s main quadrangle in front of Neilson Library.

At 12:15 p.m. on Chapin Lawn, Jennifer Walters, dean of religious life, will lead a brief memorial that will honor those who died on September 11 and recognize the impact on the world of that event. Other college chaplains will join Walters for the memorial.

At 7 p.m., in Graham Auditorium, Hillyer Hall, a three-member panel will talk about the way that day’s events have impacted international relations, the situation in the Middle East and domestic politics.

Moderated by Floyd Cheung, assistant professor of English language and literature, the panel will include Mlada Bukovansky, associate professor of government, Suleiman Mourad, assistant professor of religion, and Marc Lendler, associate professor of government.
