CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Religion in Europe Unit and Religion, Holocaust, and Genocide Unit

Call for Papers: 

Recognizing the Armenian Genocide

At a 2017 United Nations General Assembly meeting, President of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, invited "all member States to support a new initiative toward the international recognition of the Armenian genocide" (www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=57581#.WirgkbaZPOQ). In light of President Sargsyan’s invitation and the Annual Meeting theme of "The Civic Responsibilities, Opportunities, and Risks Facing Scholars of Religion," we invite proposals that address the role of religion in the politics of recognition and denial with regard to the Armenian genocide. We are particularly interested in the following themes: (1) the politics of denial and recognition of the Armenian genocide in Turkish and European contexts with attention to religious language involved, and/or (2) the role of religious and or secular rhetoric, as well as the implications and political influence of international recognition of the Armenian genocide by various religious groups (such as Pope Francis in 2015 and the Central Council of Jews in Germany), (3) and/or the risks facing scholars of the Armenian genocide, especially Turkish scholars or scholars based in Turkey.
