Armenian Studies 120T-"The Armenian Genocide and its Aftermath"

Schedule number-77385

This course fulfills one of the requirements for the Armenian Studies Minor. The course will be taught by the Kazan Visiting Professor in Armenian Studies for the Fall. You may enroll in the class for a grade or credit/no credit. Below is the full description of the course.

"Genocide casts a long shadow. Its impact reverberates across generations and geographies long after the systematic killing stops. This course focuses on the organization and implementation of the Armenian Genocide, humanitarian and armed resistance to it, and the long shadow of the crime in Turkey and the Armenian world.

The course explores the Ottoman setting where the genocide was executed, Armenian cultural, social, and political life in the Ottoman Empire on the eve of the Great War; the Armenian Question in the push and pull of internal Ottoman politics and ideology and international relations involving the Great Powers’ appetites; World War I as context and cover; the organization and implementation of the genocide; sexual violence; agency and the multiple forms of resistance; attempts to try and punish the perpetrators and compensate the victims in the aftermath of WW1 (from 1918 to 1923); post-war regeneration of Armenian community life; official Turkish denial of the genocide and the Armenian response; modern Turkey and the legacies of the Genocide; and acknowledgment, apology, and redress in comparative perspective."
