Armenian Genocide: A Dark Paradigm

This year, the world commemorates the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, which counted many noted writers and cultural leaders among the dead. A panel discusses this tragedy—a glimpse into the darkest regions of the human soul—and its significance as a “dark paradigm” for later attempts by governments to silence writers and cultural leaders. This event will include readings of the works of Armenian writers killed in 1915.
