Lecture about Armenian Genocide

The Faculty of Social Sciences of University of Latvia invites to a lecture “Evidences of Armenian Genocide and the origins of its denial” by Taner Akçam and Siobhan Nash-Marshall to be held at 10.30 a.m. on December 11, 2019 at the Isaiah Berlin Auditorium, Lauvas iela 4, Rīga. The lecture will be followed by a discussion. The event will be moderated by Dr. Didzis Kļaviņš.

Historian Taner Akçam and Professor Siobhan Nash-Marshall will discuss the Armenian Genocide and the long-standing efforts of various Turkish governments to deny its historicity and to conceal documentary evidence surrounding it. In his latest book, Killing Orders, Professor Akçam offers a major clarification of the often-blurred lines between facts and truth with regard to Armenian Genocide, revealing documents containing the killing orders signed by Turkish officials.

Siobhan Nash-Marshall will focus on the very notion of genocide denialism and will argue that Turkish denialism is an inherent part of the Armenian genocide. She will also speak about ideological roots of genocide.
