The Armenian Genocide: New Interpretations and Cross-Disciplinary Conversations

At The American University of Paris
Wednesday, May 15, 2024 - 00:00 to Friday, May 17, 2024 - 23:55

From the 15th to the 17th of May 2024, The American University of Paris and the AGBU Nubar Library will host an international conference that will ask: how can the social sciences, memory studies, and genocide studies contribute to a broader understanding of the Armenian genocide and its aftermath? And reciprocally: what is the contribution of research on the Armenian genocide to our understanding of mass crimes and to the social sciences?

The conference will welcome innovative and comparative papers on the Armenian genocide addressing issues raised in neighboring – and sometimes distant – academic fields inquiring into debates, findings, and reflections in a wide range of disciplines, including history, literature, sociology, psychology, anthropology, linguistics, art history, musicology, law, political science, philosophy and multidisciplinary discussions.

The conference languages will be English and French.
