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 entitled, Crossing the Centennial: The Historiography of the Armenian Genocide Re-Evaluated, at the Wick Alumni Center, Great Hall, 1520 R St in Lincoln.

Twenty-two scholars from Armenia, Cambodia, Canada, Holland, Hungary, Israel, and the United States representing 17 different academic institutions will participate in 5 panels.

The conference will start at 2p.m. on Thurs., March 19, with welcoming remarks by Prof. William G. Thomas III, chair of the Department of History at UNL, and opening remarks by Der Matossian.

The first panel, entitled Humanitarianism and Humanitarian Intervention, will be moderated by Prof. David Forsythe (UNL), who is widely regarded as being among the first scholars who established the study of human rights and humanitarian affairs in the disciplines of political science and international relations.

The second day of the conference will start at 9 a.m. and will feature four panels. The first, entitled Women and Children during the Genocide, will be chaired by Prof. Patrice McMahon, an expert on international security, conflict, and human rights, and will feature the following speakers and subjects: Prof. Benny Morris (Ben-Gurion University), Women and Children in the Turkish Ethnic Cleansing of Armenians and Greeks, 1919-23; Prof. Carina Karapetian Giorgi (Pomona College), Critical Examination of the Historiography of Women during the Armenian Genocide; Anna Aleksanyan (Clark University), Neutral home and the Issue of Identity of the Surviving Armenian Women and Children; and Tu??e Kayaal (University of Michigan-Ann Arbor), A Critique of the Concept of the Genocide Survivor: Armenian Orphans in Aleppo Between the Years of 1915-18.

The second panel, entitled The Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust, will be chaired by Prof. Ari Kohen, the director of the Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs Program at UNL and will feature the following speakers and subjects: ?mit Kurt (Clark University), Legal and Official Plundering of Armenian and Jewish Properties during the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust within a Comparative Perspective; Prof. Stefan Ihrig (Van Leer Institute, Jerusalem), From the Armenian Genocide to the Holocaust: A Connected Perspective; and Prof. Harutyun Marutyan (National Academy of Sciences of Armenia), The Institute of Righteous among the Nations in the Armenian and the Jewish Cases.

Closing remarks will be delivered by Prof. Lloyd Ambrosius from the Department of History. It is a great honor for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to hold the largest conference in the Midwest to mark the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide, said Der Matossian. It is not only that we are bringing scholars from various disciplines to discuss different aspects of the Armenian Genocide but that we also should think of this conference as a unique opportunity for the university community at large to benefit from the expertise of top scholars in the field and understand better one of the first genocides of the modern period.

The poster of the conference was prepared by Ruben Malayan, a renowned artist from Armenia. The poster displays Malayans expression of the experiences of the Armenian nation (represented by women and children) on the death marches of the genocide. The white auras around their heads symbolize the sanctity of the victims. The stark contrast of black and white background represents the inhuman suffering people had to endure before perishing. The work was inspired by a real photograph of an Armenian family taken during expulsion and extermination of 1915.

The event is open to the public. For more information, contact Der Matossian at bdermatossian2@unl.edu or 402-472-2417.
