After September 11th: Change in the Academy?

Panelists discussed the frequent observation that the attacks of 2001 "changed everything." How have scholars and disciplines adapted or changed their approaches and topics, if at all, in the post-9/11 world?
For instance, it's widely acknowledged that political science has devoted more attention to the role of religion in global affairs, but whether or not this attention has been useful--or theoretically rigorous--is an open question. In religious studies, some changes have been apparent (e.g. an increase in Islamic Studies positions and courses), but has 9/11 changed the discourse about religion and its interaction with other disciplines?
Panelists:
Clyde Wilcox (Government)
David Luban (Law/Philosophy)
Daniel Madigan (Theology)
Fathali Moghaddam (Psychology)
Clifford Chanin, moderator (National September 11 Memorial & Museum)

The panel included academics from a range of disciplines who addressed: 1) how their work changed in light of 9/11, if at all, 2) how their disciplines changed (e.g. methodologies, topics, public outreach, curriculum, etc.), if at all, and 3) whether academic institutions and scholars are preparing students for the post-9/11 world differently.
