dc.description.abstractThis paper examines the impact of 9/11 on the American imaginary and the ways in which old myths of the American hero have been rehashed in the aftermath of the attacks. Using Susan Faludi’s The Terror Dream: What 9/11 Revealed about America as the main object of study, the repercussions this resurgence of American mythical constructions had on women and feminist discourse will be explored. The purpose of the paper is to demonstrate how prejudice against women is deeply ingrained in the American hero myth narratives and how it gains momentum in times of crisis, revealing an internalized misogyny.por
dc.description.abstractEste trabalho analisa o impacto do 11 de setembro no imaginário americano e a forma como velhos mitos do herói americano renasceram após os ataques. Com a obra de Susan Faludi, The Terror Dream: What 9/11 Revealed about America, como principal objeto de estudo, as repercussões que este ressurgimento das construções míticas americanas tiveram nas mulheres e no discurso feminista serão exploradas. O objetivo do trabalho é demonstrar a forma como o preconceito contra as mulheres está profundamente entranhado nas narrativas do mito do herói americano e como este ganha ímpeto em momentos de crise, revelando uma misoginia internalizada.por
