Two Mohammad Attas? On Jean Baudrillard’s Spirit of Terrorism
Check out my new article, “Two Attas”, in the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies (January, 2011)
It’s an attempt to work through Jean Baudrillard’s controversial and (to many) odious ideas about 9/11. So, if you’ve got any interest in the links between Bataille and Baudrillard’s notions of exchange, Baudrillard’s work on terrorism and suicide bombing, or Mohammad Atta (one of the 9/11 attackers), you might be interested in this.
