International Conference at University of Nebraska-Lincoln to Mark Genocide Centenary

LINCOLN, Neb.—On the occasion of the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) will host a two-day conference from March 19-20, 2015, entitled “Crossing the Centennial: The Historiography of the Armenian Genocide Re-Evaluated.” Organized by Prof. Bedross Der Matossian from the Department of History at UNL, the conference is co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Judaic Studies, the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR) in Belmont, Mass., and the Society for Armenian Studies (SAS) in cooperation with the Department of History, the Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs Program, and the Institute of Ethnic Studies at UNL.

The conference will focus on four under-researched themes that have recently gained scholarly attention and analytical depth: humanitarianism and humanitarian intervention in the Armenian Genocide; women and children in the Armenian Genocide; comparative dimensions of the Armenian Genocide; and the impact of the Armenian Genocide. Twenty-two scholars from Armenia, Cambodia, Canada, Holland, Hungary, Israel, and the United States representing 17 different academic institutions will participate in the conference.

The complete program will be available in January 2015. For more information, contact Der Matossian by e-mailing
