The Armenian Genocide and Humanitarianism in Ottoman Syria: A Talk with Author Khatchig Mouradian  (Special Events)

This event is offered in a hybrid format. Please join us in person in the Green Room (W444) of the Main Library, or virtually on Zoom. Registration is required for online attendance.

Please join us for a special evening with Dr. Khatchig Mouradian. In his new book from the MSU Press, The Resistance Network, Dr. Mouradian presents a social history of genocide and resistance in wartime Aleppo and a network of transit and concentration camps. Come hear an entirely new account of the Armenian Genocide as it took place in Syria. Mouradian challenges depictions of Armenians as passive victims of violence and subjects of humanitarianism, demonstrating the key role they played in organizing a humanitarian resistance against the destruction of their people.

Khatchig Mouradian, PhD, is a lecturer in Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies at Columbia University, and the Armenian and Georgian Area Specialist at the Library of Congress (African and Middle Eastern Division).

Cosponsored by Department of History, Muslim Studies Program, Serling Institute for Jewish Studies and Modern Israel, Center for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies, Asian Studies Center, Peace & Justice Studies.

Book signing available at the conclusion of the program.

Celebrating 75 years of the MSU Press!
