Were you or do you know someone who was born between 1990 and 2005? Scholars and generational commentators have had difficulty settling on a name for the generation that is quickly achieving adulthood in America. Join Dr. Matthew Warshauer, professor of history at Central Connecticut State University, to learn why it should properly be known as the 9/11 Generation.

Still, everything in the 9/11 Generation’s world has been directed by the event. There exists an America before 9/11, and an America after.
