Dear Colleagues,

As part of our online lecture series “Intersectional Perspectives on Turkey,” we will be hosting the historian Dr. Khatchig Mouradian (Columbia University) in our upcoming event which will be introduced by Dr. Seyhan Bayraktar (Zurich University of Applied Sciences, ZHAW, SFST).

Mouradian will present his new book The Resistance Network: The Armenian Genocide and Humanitarianism in Ottoman Syria, 1915–1918 where he provides a social history of the Armenian Genocide in wartime Aleppo under the Ottoman Empire. Mouradian explores an underground network of humanitarianism and unarmed resistance that saved countless lives despite the violent and systematic destruction in the cities, concentration camps, and massacre sites in the region.

The book launch will take place on 22 April 2021, Thursday at 18:00-19:30 (CET) on Zoom. To join, please click on the following link:
