dc.description.abstract[EN]The attacks on September 11, 2001 have left a mark in the history of the world and its effects have been realized in several disciplines. Literature is one these disciplines to reflect the aftermath situation not just in American but all over the world. Up to today, there are more than one hundred novels published post-9/11. Though not all of them directly deal with 9/11 attacks, they mostly mention about that day and its outcomes. This thesis studies the novels that deal with trauma in the context of September 11 attacks. The selected novels focus on the dominant traumatic instances as well as the traumatic spaces that have influenced the characters’ lives. The repetitive and unforeseeable instances of trauma dominates the spaces and places of the characters’ everyday-life which brings after spatial analysis in conjunction with trauma studies in this thesis. The main objective of this thesis is to present the extents that trauma that has occupied the fictional lives, with references and examples to real lives post-9/11. While this study mainly focuses on three novels, Cormac McCarthy's The Road, Nilüfer Kuyaş’s Serbest Düşüş and Amy Waldman's The Submission, there are also allusions to some other 9/11 novels. There are four main chapters in this thesis. The first chapter, ‘Trauma and Space in the Post-9/11 Novel’, analyses how these two terms interact with each other and tries to place it with a theoretical framework. The second chapter, ‘The Road: Post-apocalyptic Trauma’, discusses how trauma is represented as post-apocalyptic. The third chapter examines ‘Nilüfer Kuyaş’s Serbest Düşüş (Free Fall): Trauma at the Crossroads’ and shows how September 11 attacks are received and responded in Turkey. The fourth chapter discusses ‘Amy Waldman’s The Submission: Trauma on a National Scale’ and explores the connection between the plan of a memorial site and trauma and draws clear lines of traumascapes.en
