Truth and Betrayals: The Armenian Genocide and Why it Matters
A joint lecture by Professor Antonia Arslan and Professor Siobhan Nash Marshall, followed by a reception with light refreshments and books by both authors available to purchase.
Prof. Antonia Arslan and Prof. Siobhan Nash Marshall will discuss new perspectives on the denial of the Armenian Genocide, a devastating example of what we now call “a post-truth” phenomenon. Their focus will be on the relevance of this poignant example to today’s seeming tidal wave of “historical engineering.”
Presented by Dr. Susan Pattie and Raffi Tanielian.
We are grateful to Raffi and Alice Tanielian for their generous support, making this evening possible.
