This chapter tells the story of trying to integrate ritual theory and ritual practice in a university and a course caught up in the wake of 9/11. It began as two separate responses to the events of September 11, 2001. The first was written to be delivered publicly at a town hall-style meeting of the university community. The second, an account of a post-9/11 meeting of a course called “Rites of Passage”.

Keywords:   ritual theory, ritual practice, 9/11, university
