Interpreting complex phenomena through various media is more important than ever in today’s information-rich world. Lacuna is an exploratory, interactive online ecosystem where people can research and discuss significant historical events like 9/11 using the wide array of sources we have collected, which include governmental, professional, academic, literary, and popular documents and responses. Lacuna doesn’t aim to construct a single narrative or a conclusive “truth” of the event. Instead, the diversity of sources and the kinds of interactions and conversations facilitated by Lacuna encourage a form of creative work to inspires new responses to and stories about 9/11.

Below are lesson plans developed by previous SHREI Fellows.
