For 2008, the seventh anniversary of the attacks, Turner's project is publication of the following essay and possible responses to it that may be posted on BAC's online Forum. Much has been written and documented concerning the ephemeral memorials that filled the city in the wake of destruction and death on that day. Here Turner traces their legacy and relation to other folk expressions of mourning and remembrance. This essay is excerpted from a longer piece to be published in 2009.
