Time: 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Location: Lucy Ellis Lounge, 1080 Foreign Languages Building (707 S Mathews Ave, Urbana) & 304 English Building (608 S Wright St, Urbana, Illinois)
This event aims to foster interdisciplinary and transnational discussions on remembering the Armenian Genocide across time, space, and place. It will address how memories of this genocide travel across media and form (film, literature, art, and photography) and how they are referenced across intersectional lines to also bring to the fore other histories of collective violence.
